Ghana coach Avram Grant expects tough game against Canada
Head coach of Ghana, Avram Grant has stated that the Canucks of Canada will give the Black Stars a tough game when the two sides meet in Tuesday’s international friendly at the RFK Stadium in Washington DC,USA.
Ghana will use the friendly game as preparations for next month’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against the winner of the first round qualifying match between Comoros or Lesotho.
Speaking at the press briefing ahead of the game, Black Stars Coach Grant said football in Canada has improved over the years and he expects a good game when the two sides meet.
“Football has developed very well in Canada. I was at a game between Toronto FC and Chicago Fire last week. It was a good game and the football has developed a lot since 20 years ago when I first watched a football game there,” the Israeli trainer said.
“It’s a friendly game but we couldn’t get our full squad here due to various reasons. However, there are a lot of Ghanaian footballers around the world so am giving these players an opportunity to show their talent and to prove that they deserve a place in the national team”, he added.
The official will kickoff time at 7:00pm local time (11:00pm GMT).
