Suspended Ghana striker Yahaya Mohammed remains confident his colleagues can beat Ethiopia without him on Tuesday.
The Ghanaians will take on the rock-bottom side in the final group C game in the ongoing CHAN tournament at the Free State Stars stadium.
The Ghanaians will be without the Asante Kotoko talisman who is suspended for the tie after picking up two yellow cards against Congo and Libya respectively.
However the 25-year-old is backing his team-mate to beat Ethiopia without him.
“It’s a major worry but I believe in my boys. Those who will get the chance to play I believe in them,” Mohammed said
“I trust that they are going to make it for me and the team to qualify. It’s just of me sitting back and praying for them.
“We have the desire to stay here in Bloemfontein but the most important thing is for us to qualify.
“If we qualify as group winners or not does not matter. The most important thing is for us to qualify to the next stage of the tournament.”
Mohammed was voted man of the match during their 1-1 draw against Libya.
