Ghana will train at the Nelson Mandela Stadium in Kampala on Friday before facing Uganda on Saturday, 7 October in a crucial 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

"So for us it's all about winning our remaining games and to see how far we can go because no one gave us a chance".

Appiah added, "We have players in this squad, who deserve to play".

Ghana's forward Andre Ayew celebrates after scoring a goal during the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations group D football match between Ghana and Uganda in Port-Gentil on January 17, 2017.

Seven members of Kwesi Appiah's 26 squad have been ruled out due to injuries whilst playing for their respective clubs.

"We do not care who is coming, and who is not coming to play against us on Saturday".

Egypt who has picked up nine points from their first four games of the qualifiers have their destinies in their own hands and will all but seal qualification with a win against the Red Devils of Congo in Alexandria this weekend. "All we know is that we are playing against the Black Stars of Ghana and we are going all out for a win", Basena said.

A win in Kampala is vital for the Black Stars - now placed third in the group with five points from four matches - before their final qualifier against current leaders Egypt, at home in Accra on November 6.

Captain Asamoah Gyan who missed out before the second leg game against Congo could not make it again, Afriyie Acquah, Thomas Agyepong, Harrison Afful and Jonathan Mensah have all missed the trip due to injuries but he is banging his hopes on the players left in camp now to deliver.
