  • Asamoah Gyan Kayserispor

The 56-year-old explained his reasons for dropping a handful of stars from Ghana's squad for the Uganda clash.

"We are still monitoring and that is why it is a national team, you don't always depend on few players".

Ghana's Black Stars left Kenya on Thursday for Uganda ahead of the crucial 2018 World Cup qualifier in the Ugandan capital Kampala at the weekend. They include midfielder Kingsley Sarfo of Swedish side Malmo, defender Vincent Atings of Ghana premier league's Hearts of Oak and striker John Atwin of Egyptian side Misr Makkasa, all of whom trained with the team for the first time in Nairobi.

Turkish Club Kayserispor had sent in a letter to the Black Stars Coach to excuse the player from his squad in order to allow him heal following an injury he sustained.

"We are not under pressure but a win will be very positive for us".

In a related development, Uganda coach, Moses Basena has sounded a warning that they will leave no stone unturned on Saturday as they search for an important victory, insisting that they are not bothered by the absence of some big-name players from the ghana side such as Gyan and the Ayew brothers, Andre and Jordan.

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has admitted that it will not be easy playing Uganda in Kampala.

Uganda are now second on the Group E log on seven points, two shy of group leaders Egypt who host bottom side Congo on Sunday. "I know they will do well".

The players namely Asamoah Gyan, Thomas Agyepong, Jonathan Mensah, Harrison Afful and Christian Atsu have all been ruled out due to injury.
