Desire to be at Brazil is a motivation for Ghana players – Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah

Coach Kwesi Appiah says beating Sudan is the surest way for the Ghanaians to position themselves well for a third successive appearance at the global football level
Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has called on his charges to be motivated by their desire to play at the 2014 World Cup as they face off with Sudan on Sunday.

He said nothing but a win against the Nile Crocodiles will smoothen their path to realise a dream of a third consecutive World Cup appearance,

"The World Cup is a great sporting event that every player dreams of,” Appiah said on the GFA website. “A few members of the present team have had that opportunity but I believe the rest can draw motivation from that.”

"They should have that desire of wanting to be in Brazil and make sure that they carry that dream through. “

Appiah added: "We need to go out there and take the points and keep on like that.

"Our first two games mean nothing now. The most important game for us is the game against Sudan and that is what we are focusing on now.

"It is a long road to reaching the finals in Brazil. And we must beat them [Sudan] to stay on track. The table is a reflection of results so far but our campaign has always been in our hands.

"We must focus on beating Sudan and see where that takes us."
