“Mali is a good side. We’ve watched them during the WAFU tournament, and played against them two years ago in Cameroon, where they gave us a tough first half, but we still emerged 3-1 winners,” she said.

“So Mali are not a threat to Ghana. As you saw in our last game, we created a lot of chances but were unable to finish them, but against Mali will be different. We will create a lot and utilize them.”

Kick off for the game is 15:30 GMT at the Accra Sports Stadium.
