Ghana vs Sudan: Kwesi Appiah’s insider knowledge a plus for Sudan

Former Ghana midfielder Laryea Kingston believes Kwesi Appiah may have an edge in the upcoming 2025 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against the Black Stars.

 

The recent AFCON draw placed Ghana in Group F alongside Sudan, Angola, and Niger. Social media buzzed with discussions about the potential face-off between current Ghana coach Otto Addo and former national team manager Kwesi Appiah, now leading Sudan.

 

Appiah, who guided Ghana to the 2014 World Cup and 2019 AFCON, has made an impressive start with Sudan in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers. His team currently tops Group B with 10 points from four matches.

 

Kingston shared his thoughts with 3Sports: “Kwesi Appiah’s Ghanaian background gives him insight into our approach and mindset. This could pose a challenge for us, as he likely understands Ghana better than Otto knows the Sudanese players.”

 

He added, “If I were in Appiah’s position, I’d be eager for this match. It’s an opportunity to prove his capabilities and show he’s still fit to lead Ghana. This could be one of the most intriguing games of Otto’s tenure with the Black Stars.”

 

The qualifiers are scheduled to run from September to November 2024. The top two teams from each group will secure their spots in the tournament hosted by Morocco.
