Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2024 match:
A place in the Africa Cup of Nations knockout stages will be at stake when Mozambique and Ghana lock horns at Stade Olympique Alassane Ouattara on Monday evening. Mozambique aim to recover from a heavy 3-0 loss to Cape Verde and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Black Stars. Both Lau King and Domingues are pushing for a start after the duo came off the bench in the second group game.
The Ghanaians, on the other hand, head into the decider following a 2-2 draw with Egypt. A man to keep an eye on in Chris Hughton’s team will be Mohammed Kudus, who scored a brace against the Pharaohs and we predict that the West Ham winger will lead Ghana to their first victory at the showpiece tournament in Ivory Coast. Chris Hughton is likely to stick to the 4-2-3-1 formation, with Bournemouth man up front as a lone forward.
Highlighted Player (Iñaki Williams):
Inaki Williams is one of the most talented Spanish players. The pacey winger, who plays as a centre-forward as well, started his senior career at Basconia, scoring seven goals in 18 appearances for the club. In 2014 he moved to Athletic Bilbao, but he played for the reserve team at the beginning.
Inaki impressed in the 2014/2015 season with Athletic Bilbao B and, as a result, he was given a chance to prove his worth in the Spanish top flight with the first team. The Spanish footballer made his La liga debut on December 6, 2014, replacing injured attacker Aritz Aduriz in a 1-0 loss to Cordoba.
Inaki Williams represented Spain at the 2017 U21 European Championship in Poland and he played 20 minutes in a 1-0 loss to Germany in the final of the tournament. Speaking of the senior squad, the Athletic Bilbao footballer made his Spain debut in a 3-1 victory over Bosnia on May 29, 2016. Inaki Williams was born in Bilbao on June 15, 1994.
Highlighted Team (Ghana):
Ghana are an African football team administered by Ghana Football Association. The Black Stars made their first ever appearances at the World Cup finals in 2006 and they were grouped with the likes of Italy, Czech Republic and United States. Ghana booked their place in the last 16, but they were outclassed by Brazil in the knockout stages of the showpiece tournament.
In 2010 the Ghanaians did remarkably well to make it to the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup and it has to be noted that they were more than unfortunate not to eliminate Uruguay in the knockout stages of the tournament in South Africa.
The likes of Asamoah Gyan, Richard Kingson, John Paintsil, Emmanuel Agymang-Badu, Sulley Muntari, John Mensah, Andre Ayew, Kwadwo Asamoah, Harrison Afful and Abedi Pele are Ghana’s most capped players, but, no doubt, Michael Essien is the most famous footballer who played for the Black Stars. The Ghanaians play their home games in white shirts, while the colour of the team’s away kit is red.
