Ghana settle on Cosafa Cup team list

Ghana coach, Maxwell Konadu, has settled on his 20-man list for the 2015 Cosafa Cup tournament currently underway in South Africa.

Konadu, who is leading the home-based group of the Black Stars as the tournament’s guest, has drawn out a strong squad comprising the Ghana Premier League’s finest top scorer Nathaniel Asamoah, former Maritzburg forward Yakubu Mohammed and Fatau Dauda, who last played for South African clubs Orlando Pirates and Chippa United.

The team’s new schedule will see them leave Accra on the night of April 21 and play the winner of Group B on Sunday, May 24.

In the opening games of Group B on Monday, Swaziland nicked one over Tanzania while Lesotho lost 1-2 to Madagascar. They play the second round of matches at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace on Wednesday and the final group games on May 22.

Ghana then faces the winner of this group at the quarterfinals stage on Sunday. The game is fixed for the Moruleng Stadium with kick-off at 3pm CAT
