Can Stars Pass Wurzburg Test?

Ghana's Black Stars will tomorrow evening sort things out with German Bundesliga side, VFB Stuttgart in a friendly, at Wurzburg in Germany.

Lying eighth in the German league, the homeside look formidable to offer , stiff challenge to their Ghanaian opponents who are putting the pieces together ahead of next summer's World Cup.

A locally-based contingent which left Accra yesterday is expected to join the foreign segment for tomorrow's preparatory exercise.

The Stars will, for sure, miss the services of key midfielder Michael Essien due to a club assignment.

But that will not impact adversely on a team that has other options in the likes of Ibrahim Tanko and Yusif Chibsah who have been recalled to prove their merit as the team gears up for the World Cup showpiece.

The Black Stars have every reason to give their best shot to rewrite their names in the good books, having won one out of their many encounters against opponents like Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Mexico and others in recent months.

The return of speedsters Dong Bortey, Charles Taylor, Eric Addo, Awuley Quaye Jnr and others provides Coach Ratomir Dujkovic options to restore the confidence of Ghanaians before the June big feaster.
