Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu says the Black Stars will keep an eye on Zambia duo Christopher Katongo and Kennedy Mweene in Friday’s World Cup qualifier.
The two African sides will go at each other at Ghana’s second largest city, Kumasi in a keenly anticipatd fixture.
The Black Stars are the overpowering favourite to book a place in the final play-off but the Ganaian are aware the Chipolopolo’s could be a tricky cusmtomer.
Even though Zambia have claimed though strikers James Mulenga and Collins Mbesuma won’t be available for the fixture due to injuries, their host are not leaving anything to chance.
The Udinese ace admits the enormity of the task and has singled out captain Christopher Katongo and tough-talking goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene as the main threat.
“Zambia isa good side and so we should not make any mistake about it. I think their captain Katongo and Mweene are the men we must check,” Badu
“We are going to keep an eye on those two players because they are very influential in their team.
“It doesn’t mean we’ll go to sleep and not bother about the players. They are equally good.
“But we have the men and the pedigree to stop them finally. It’s long overdue and it’s time we put them to sleep.
The fixture has been embroiled in huge controversy. First the Zambia FA unjustly their Ghanaian counterpart for the shambolic travel arrangement while the team was denied access to train at the Baba Yara stadium on Thursday following their late arrival.
