Black Stars head coach Milovan Rajevac has hinted that he is set to introduce new players in his squad for next month's 2010 joint Nations Cup/World Cup qualifier against Mali and Sudan.

The Serbian was in the United States and watched some youngsters in the Major League Soccer and also monitored players in Europe.

Rajevac will release his list for the assignments later this week and begin camping in Tamale after the end of the major European leagues.

"I was in Europe also I was in United States and I saw some new players. Main purpose was to monitor our players, to check their form, to check some players who were injured before and how they are recovering coming into the game,” Rajevac said on Joy FM.

"The chance will be given to some young players. My assistant coach was in Britain and he was monitoring and he was talking to some new players who are coming up   in England and from Ghana."

Ghana lead the Group D table and will warm up for the qualifiers with a friendly against Uganda in Tamale on 30 May.  

He believes his side is fancied to get favourable results for the double qualifiers.

"Kwadwo Asamoah is in an exceptional form and some other players. Those games are going to be very important for us.

  "So we are playing two matches away and I think we have the psychological advantage for these matches and we are hoping for good results."
