Previous Ghana defender Anthony Baffoe has charged Black Stars players to “show hunger” on Friday when they face Gabon in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
Black Stars lost their initial game 1-0 against Morocco and can’t bear to drop focuses against the Panthers, who have been supported by the arrival of captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Arsenal forward missed the success over Comoros because of a positive Covid-19 test.
“You see, you must show hunger, hunger to win. Aubameyang has recovered. I don’t care if Abdul Mumin, Jonathan Mensah, [Alexander] Djiku or Daniel Amartey is going to play in central defence- I don’t care,” the former CAF General Secretary told the players after Thursday’s final training session at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium where the match will be played.

“From day one when you move out of the dressing room when you go into the tunnel, they must feel you, no smiles. It’s no more jokes. Gabon is going to fall tomorrow.
