Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah is set to make his audition as the manager of the national team with a mouth watering clash in Kumasi early next month. The former Kumasi Asante Kotoko full back has been given a perfect platform to kick start his second spell as the head coach at the dreaded Baba Yara Sports stadium when the Black Stars host Ethiopia in a 2019 AFCON qualifier.
The Black Stars of Ghana last played a competitive fixture at the Baba Yara stadium three years ago in a 2015 AFCON clash but has been offered a way back to the stadium as a way of welcoming their new trainer.
