Coach Jimmy Cobblah wants his side’s second group match against Senegal to be rescheduled to Thursday after a 2-0 win over Burkina Faso.
Ghana’s opening game against Burkina Faso which was to be played on Sunday had to be pushed to Monday due to the malfunctioning of the lighting system at the Maradi Stadium.
Ghana, after a tireless victory over Burkina Faso will need to adjust and play a strong Senegalese side on Wednesday, a little above 24hours after their opening match.
Cobblah wants organizers to rearrange the game to enable his side play on Thursday.
“It is right for anybody to say we should play in a competition of this sort after 24 hours, it is not done anywhere so I know the organizers will look at it and I believe that they will do the right thing for us to play after 48 hours,” he said in a post-match conference.
A win over Mali will certainly see Ghana through to the semifinals and also confirm a place at the World Cup in Poland.
