Struggling Madagascar have revealed hopes and motivational strategies lined up to grind good results against Ghana in their upcoming Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier.
The BAREA have endured a terrible run of form under former head coach Nicolas Dupuis in the ongoing 2023 AFCON qualifiers, having drawn just one and lost four of their five matches so far. Madagascar appointed indigenous coach Rakotondrabe Romuald following the resignation of Nicolas Dupuis to lead the national team on an interim basis and will be in charge of the team against Ghana.
Ahead of the fixture against the Black Stars on Sunday, June 18, 2023, at 17H00 at the Stade Kianja Barea in Antananarivo, ghanasportspage.com has been finding out from the Madagascar FA Boss how they intend to correct the wrongs against Ghana.
”Madagascar is in a very difficult position but we’ll give the maximum”, Andrianony Victorien admitted.
However, the BAREA are much hopeful that the appointment of coach Rakotondrabe Romuald will bring a new sense of potency against the Black Stars despite having been eliminated from the qualification position of Group E.
”With the new local coach, we hope that the team will offer different aspects of the game, more efficient than previous matches”, he hoped.
Ghana are currently top of Group E with 8 points, followed closely by Central African Republic with 7 points. Qualification hopefuls Angola sit third with 5 points while Madagascar lie bottom of the table with 1 point in 4 matches.
