Black Meteors next opponents Algeria, on the other hand, had held Equatorial Guinea to a goalless draw in the first leg of the second round of qualifiers before beating the West Africans 3-1 on Tuesday.

Ghana is scheduled to host the first leg of the crucial qualifier on Wednesday, June 5 with the second leg scheduled to be played in Algiers four days later.

Deputy coach Michael Osei recently returned from a refresher course in Germany. Many football fans think the team should have a substantive coach as Ibrahim Tanko is with the Black Stars who are also preparing for the 2019 Africa Cup in Egypt.
