The former Celtic midfielder was among the first batch of players who arrived in Ghana for their final AFCON qualifier against Rwanda.

 

And Wakaso, who was among the first batch of players trained with the team on Tuesday, is hoping that the team will continue to enjoy the unrelenting support of Ghanaians.

“You can see that we are all very focused and determined to do the job,” Wakaso told the press after the team’s first training session

“All we want is for the nation to support us so we deliver for them against Rwanda.”

“We want to maintain our momentum and continue our preparations for the World Cup Qualifier.”

 

The Black Stars claimed a narrow 1-0 win over Rwanda when the teams met in their group match in Kigali a year ago, with Mubarak Wakaso scoring a late goal to see the West Africans to victory.
