2021 Afcon: It won’t be easy against Ghana – Gabon assistant coach

Gabon assistant coach Anicet Yala says their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) Group C clash against Ghana won’t be easy on Friday night.

The Black Stars are going into the game without a point after losing their opening game by a lone goal against Morocco on Monday.

The Panters have three points to their credit after edging Comoros in their opener but are wary of the wounded West Africans.

Gabon has recovered key man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after he tested negative for COVID-19 and took part in training ahead of the clash at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium tomorrow.

“We have 28 players at our disposal, and we will seek for solutions among the group,” Yala, who is deputizing for COVID-19 positive Patrice Neveu, said ahead of the game.

“It’s always good to count on players like Aubameyang. The group will be stronger. We will go into this game with the same determination as always.

“We know it won’t be an easy game, but I believe in the quality of my players and their talent.”
