Ghanaâ€™s Black Stars arrive in Kenya on Sunday for camp ahead of their decisive African Nations Cup (Afcon) qualifier against the Flames next week in Lilongwe, Nation Online has learnt.
Kenyan Football Confederation (KFC) media liaison officer John Karikuti has confirmed the news.
However, according to Kariuki, the Ghanaians will not play any build-up matches during their stay in Kenya.
Black Stars need a barren draw or a 1-0 win in the return to qualify for the next stage of qualification.
Coach Kwesi Appiahâ€™s 21-man squad includes four experienced defenders who have been recalled especially for the Flames game.
World Cup hero John Pantsil has also made a return to the team after some months of absence, according to Appiah. Also returning to the Black Stars are David Addy, Jonathan Mensah, Rabiu Mohammed and Philemon McCarthy.
â€œWe should be able to defend our 2-0 lead and try not to let Malawi score. They are a good team tactically, we should not underrate them,â€ Appiah told reporters in his weekly briefing.
The Flames need to win by a three-goal margin to make it to the next stage of the qualifiers, a feat coach Kinnah Phiri believes can be achieved.
â€œLike I have been saying, it is possible to score three goals and beat Ghana. We just have to be positive about it. In football nothing is impossible,â€ said Kinnah.
