Black Stars coach Charles Kwabla Akonnor has said that his side will play an attacking football as he prepares for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers.

The former Asante Kotoko revealed his philosophy for the team after naming his 23 man squad for the upcoming AFCON qualifiers against Sudan.

Akonnor was handed the national team job in January 2020 as he replaced coach James Kwesi Appiah whose contract run out at the end of December 2019.

Following a successful tour in Europe where he interacted and scouted Ghanaian players, Coach Akonnor returned to the country last week.

At a press conference in Accra to announce the Black Stars squad, the trainer said, “One thing I can assure you is that we will be an offensive-oriented team. A team that will like to pass the ball quick, move to attack and we will be able to create chances”, Akonnor emphasized.

He adds that, “I want players who are disciplined strictly into our tactical play, players who do not do things that have within the domain of the team will find themselves out. We got to be disciplined”.

Ghana is expected to host Sudan at the Cape Coast Stadium later this month on March 27, 2020.
