Nyantakyi, Appiah ready for playoffs
Ghana are preparing for a difficult matchup when the play-offs for the Brazil 2014 World Cup come around and the country's FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi has given his take.
The play-offs will see the ten group winners drawn into five ties, with the winners over two legs qualifying to represent the continent at the global tournament next year.
"We hope that we get a good ballot that will offer us probably a less formidable opposition that we can surmount," Nyantakyi said.
"At that (final round) stage, you must bear in mind that no team will be cheap. Any team that has made it this far is strong and you cannot underrate any team at all."
For Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah, his side will have to deserve getting to South America by being ready for any opponent.
"I believe that if you want to go to the World Cup, you should be prepared to play any team that comes your way. And for that reason, whichever team or country, we will be prepared to play them," Appiah noted.
"The most important thing is, once we know the team, we will start looking at their games and prepare our tactics for them."
Ghana will one be paired with one of Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Egypt, Ethiopia or Senegal. The seeded teams, with Ghana, will be Cape Verde, Cote d'Ivoire, Nigeria and Algeria.
