Coach of Mozambique, Chiquinho Conde, says his side had limited time to rest ahead of Ghana’s clash in the must-win encounter of the third Group B game in the ongoing African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Ivory Coast.

Mozambique drew 2-2 in their first game against Egypt and lost 1-2 to Cape Verde.

Speaking to Journalists ahead of the Mozambique-Ghana game, coach Chiquinho Conde, who shares the same point (1) with Ghana in Group B, said his boys had insufficient rest but would show up in readiness against the Black Stars.

“We did not have much time to rest, we have had only 48 hours after our match against Cape Verde, but the Ghana team has had 72 hours for rest.”

“My players are tired both physically and mentally, so we are doing our best to ensure that our players are motivated and ready for the match,” he said. 

The Mambas of Mozambique will take on the Black Stars of Ghana on Monday, January 22, 2024, at the Stade Alassane Ouattara in Ebimpe.
