					More big matches for Black Stars - Addo

Black Stars will play Egypt on Wednesday Fifa match agent Justin Addo has vowed to organise high-profile matches for the Black Stars to aid Ghana's qualification to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

The Ghana-born football brain convinced Egypt to play Ghana on Wednesday in a friendly even though the African champions had offers from top European sides.  

The Black Stars have been housed in one of the best hotels in Egypt with maximum security ahead of the game in Cairo and are highly-impressed with the organisation.  

The high profile UK-based agent, who is famed for organising big matches for some of the top sides in the world, says the Black Stars should expect more.  

"If I have been able to put together some of the big and best matches for other countries I should be able to do more for my own country," Addo told Ghanasoccernet.  

"The Ghana FA bosses, the coaches and staff have been very professional with the way they went about this game in Cairo and this shows that they are working hard to qualify the country to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.  

"As a Ghanaian and a full supporter of the Black Stars it is my duty to strive for big friendlies for my country so that the team is well prepared for the qualifiers.  

"The players are determined to qualify, management is firm on qualification and as Ghanaians we must give our backing in any way and I am ready."

The Black Stars have been placed in a strong Group D where they face star-studded Mali, Benin and Sudan.  

Ghana must finish top of the group to qualify for Africa's first World Cup next year after impressing in the 2006 tournament in Germany.   Addo has organised some of the big matches for countries in Europe, South America, Asia and Africa, making him one of the highly respected Fifa match agents in the world.
