Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah is impressed with the state of Kasarani Stadium's playing surface ahead of Saturday’s match against Kenya.
The 60,000 sitter stadium recently got a facelift that includes a newly laid natural grass on the playing surface. “This is World class. I could just see it on the faces of my players while passing the ball around.
"From the body language, I could tell that they like the pitch. It can’t be compared with what we used in Ethiopia. I am happy with the surface,” Appiah told Goal.
While the match venue surface promises some free-flowing football, Harambee Stars coach Sebastien Migne was left fuming at the state of the pitch at the Kenya School of Monitory Studies, where Kenya pitched camp for one week.
“I don’t want to talk about the pitch. Maybe that will make me nervous,” Migne lamented on Wednesday.
The game will kick off at 4.00pm.
