After a nervy 1 – 0 victory over Kenya Saturday night, Ghana’s senior national team will take on Mauritania Tuesday night at the Accra Sports Stadium in an international friendly.

Head coach Kwesi Appiah is expected to seize the opportunity presented by the encounter to hand uncapped players some game-time to justify their inclusion and for Ghanaians to form their judgment.

“Some of them played and I will make sure they will play so that not myself alone, every Ghanaian can assess them and decide whether they are better or we should still rely on those we know already. It is important that you have such opportunities so when making the final team, we all assess them, know what they can do and what they bring on board,” Mr Appiah said in an interview.

Coach Appiah has endured a lot of flak in the past for fielding big names rather than deserving players.

He said, however, that he is gradually shaping up his squad for the Afcon in Egypt.

“Sometimes, the name alone does not count and you need to take tough decisions and go on with the team".
