Game Preview


Ghana and Mozambique will square off at the Stade Olympique Alassane Ouattara in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, on January 22.


After missing out on each of the previous 6 AFCON editions, it took Mozambique 12 years to return to the tournament, and in order to compete, the opposing squad in this match must also achieve the same requirements. History, however, is undoubtedly not in their favor as they have never prevailed in an AFCON group stage encounter, losing 12 and tying 2 of their 14 games throughout 5 tournaments, counting this one. Furthermore, Mozambique has never maintained a perfect record in the top continental competition, having given up 31 goals so far and permitting 2 or more goals in thirteen of their 14 AFCON games. Prior to such an important encounter, they require to be certain that there have been no reports of injuries from the Mozambique camp.



Ghana was eliminated from the competition 2 years ago after finishing last in their group, and if they drop this crucial game this year, they would drop to the bottom of Group B. The Black Stars were put under tremendous strain right from the start of the tournament as they were outplayed by Cape Verde, the team leading the group, and lost 3-0. Although Chris Hughton’s team entered the encounter weak, they turned in a superior performance versus Egypt on matchday two. However, after taking the lead twice, they were unable to hold on and had to come to terms for a share of the spoils. The arrival of Mohammed Kudus, a West Ham United attacker who recorded a brace in the 2-2 tie with Egypt the previous week, has invigorated the Ghanaian team. It remains to be seen if captain Andre Ayew, who was an unutilized replacement versus the Pharaohs and came on from the bench versus Cape Verde, will also be leaned on by head coach Chris Hughton.
