Sudan trainer Mohammed Abdallah is counting on the ‘special people of Kumasi’ to propel his team to beat Ghana in Sunday’s World Cup qualifier on Sunday.
The Nile crocodile arrived in the country on Thursday ahead of the hugely- anticipated clash in the Garden City.
Abdallah’s men played in Kumasi during the group phase of the 2008 African Cup of Nations held in Ghana and he believes the special ‘atmosphere’ in the venue will spur his team to victory.
“We have a critical condition in camp with our three players who play club football in Africa and they just arrived but I know the venue is Kumasi so I have no big problem,” Abdallah told Sunyani-based Storm FM.
“I want to play there everyday and feel the atmosphere of the football fans.”
“I used to play matches in Kumasi in 2008 in our group and our team was based there and we play Ghana two times there and the people there are very special and they like football, they make the game very nice every time we play so I know in Kumasi we’ll get a good result or may be a draw.
“Coaches don’t talk about result but I hope we’ll get a favourable result on that day as we do.”
Sudan are placed third on the table after they were stripped of three points for fielding an unqualified player during their 2-0 win over Zambia last year.
