Ghana best in Africa - Montenegro coach

Montenegro head coach Branko Brnovic has described Ghana as the best team on the African continent ahead of Wednesday’s international friendly.

Brnovic believes the Brave Falcons will give his side the needed test for the 2016 European Championship qualifiers.

Montenegro will face Russia, Sweden, Austria, Moldova and Liechtenstein for a qualification spot to the finals in France.

“Ghana is the best team in Africa and they will give as that competitive edge we require in a friendly game,’’ Brnovic said.

“Their performance in the world cup in recent times tells us how good they are as a team.

“They are also preparing towards the world cup and won’t come here for fun so we look forward to that game against a very tough opponent.”

Montenegro host the Black Stars at the City Stadium in the capital Podgorica.
