Renard set to make changes
Herve Renard has revealed that he will make changes to the team that played against Sudan but kept cards close to his chest as to where those changes would be effected.
"Am always satisfied with all my players in training. In football we always have to make changes but I will not tell until Saturday when I will reveal my starting eleven," said Renard.
"Emmanuel Mbola did not connect with the team when he joined camp so I left him out of the team in Sudan. This week I have seen the Mbola I know, perhaps he has finally connected with the team."
However, Renard remained unmoved by calls by Chipolopolo fans that Jonas Sakuwaha should be given a start on Saturday.
"If I listened to everything people said about me, we would not have been Champions of Africa."
There have been chants of "No Sakuwaha, no Renard" from a section of fans who watched the chipolopolo in training this week.
There is belief among Chipolopolo fans that the lanky former Zesco United striker who top-scored in the Sudanese league last season deserves to start but Renard obviously does not see things that way yet.
Renard also said he is totally focused on the task at hand because Ghana is currently the best team in Africa.
"Ghana has been the best team in Africa in the past four years. As for the Chipolopolo, we were the best for one tournament because we had fantastic organisation. Now we just have to be ready."
"There are a lot of good players in Ghana and I know that the team which Kwesi Appiah will put out will be a very strong one."
Meanwhile Dr Kabungo, who is the Chipolopolo Team Doctor, has confirmed that there are no injury worries in the squad.
Rainford Kalaba who was the only injury doubt came off the sidelines and managed to play for thirty minutes in the practice match against Zesco United on Wednesday. Dr Kabungo also dismissed fears that Rodger Kola was carrying an injury as he was seen doing light training with Kalaba.
"Rodger is fit. He was training with Kalaba because there is stiff competition in the team. The Coach wanted to pair James Chamanga with Jonas Sakuwaha," stated Dr Kabungo.
