Egypt will officially qualify if they beat Congo in Alexandria and Uganda stumble against Ghana in the same round.

"It [the group] is still open".

"When Uganda played us in Tamale, they were able to read through our game plan and their coach said we were predictable", Appiah added.

"Everyone knows the hard situation we find ourselves in the campaign", Appiah was quoted as saying by Ghanasoccernet on Tuesday.

Uganda Cranes host Madagascar in an global friendly match today at the StarTimes stadium, Lugogo.

In a related development, Uganda coach, Moses Basena has sounded a warning that they will leave no stone unturned on Saturday as they search for an important victory, insisting that they are not bothered by the absence of some big-name players from the ghana side such as Gyan and the Ayew brothers, Andre and Jordan.




"I always believe Ghana we are one of the most talented countries with good players and we always want to win, we always want to appear at the big stage and I think against Uganda we are just going there for the victory".

"We are not under pressure but a win will be very positive for us".

Meanwhile, Coach Kwasi Appiah and his players have intensified their preparation for Saturday's clash at their training basse in the Kenbyan capital, Nairobi.

Captain of the team Asamoah Gyan who was named in the squad has pulled out due to a thigh injury with Newcastle United ace Christian Atsu a doubt.

Sweden-based Kingsley Sarfo, Isaac Twum of Ghana Premier League side Inter Allies and Young Boys defender Kassim Adams are new faces introduced.
