Ghana’s assistant coach Maxwell Konadu said: "It’s a difficult group. We’re going to do our home work well. Niger is a neighbour and we just need to work very hard. I was nervous initially, but it’s a balance draw. We need to work hard. We just have to be sure and careful with Mali and Congo. Lualua knows our game and we need to prepare well to meet him."
