We don't fear Ghana - Central African Republic coach

Central African Republic head coach, Raoul Savoy is confident his outfit are ready for the daunting task against Ghana in the 2023 AFCON qualifier on Thursday.

The Central African Republic face Ghana in the last game of the 2023 AFCON qualifiers and will need a win at all cost to be able to secure qualification to the main tournament in Ivory Coast while Ghana will only need a single point to qualify.

The game seems to be more difficult for the Central African Republic based on the fact that it will be played at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi, a venue that has been given Ghana positive results even in difficulties but Savoy holds different opinion.
