James Kwesi Appiah believes Ghana’s Black Stars can close the gap to group leaders Egypt in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
The West Africans have endured a difficult start to their Group E campaign, picking up just one point from their first two matches against Uganda and Egypt.
They will resume the qualifiers with a double-header against Congo, hosting the Red Devils in Kumasi on September 1 before the return match in Brazzaville four days later.
Egypt lead the group with a full haul of six points, while Uganda are second on four points.
The Pharaohs and the Cranes will clash in Kampala and Alexandria on August 31 and September 5 respectively, with Ghanaian fans hoping they take points off each other and open the door for the Black Stars to get back into contention.
"We're sitting on one point, while Egypt have got six," Appiah is quoted by GHANASoccernet. "However, we're going to try to win our upcoming matches and leapfrog them."
