Ghana after clean sweep

ACCRA - Hosts Ghana will be looking for a clean sweep of their group when they meet Morocco (5pm) in the Africa Cup of Nations today.

The Black Stars need only draw their final Group A game in Accra, though, to make sure they finish top of the standings and avoid a likely meeting with growing favourites, the Ivory Coast, in the quarterfinals.

Morocco, having started the tournament with a 5-1 thumping of Namibia before losing 3-2 to Guinea, need to beat Ghana if they are to progress past the group stage.

Guinea and Morocco both have three points but Guinea the seemingly easier match today, against Namibia in Sekondi. Both Group A games will kick off simultaneously at 5pm. Ghana will be forced to make a switch in midfield where Laryea Kingston misses the match because of suspension.

"Morocco will be tough because they have a fine team but you will see warriors on the pitch on Monday," said Ghana coach Claude Le Roy, who has called for more support from home fans. - Reuters
