Ghana coach Avram Grant is optimistic of victory over Egypt despite missing key players through injury.

Egypt will host Ghana in Alexandria on Sunday in a 2018 World Cup qualifier on Sunday.

The Israeli trainer cannot count on the Al Ahli striker Asamoah Gyan, Juventus ace Kwadwo Asamoah and in-form Sassuolo star Alfred Duncan but is confident the 23 players called up can get the job done in Egypt.

 ‘’First I am sure the team is happy. We showed that with the right team spirit and obviously if we are playing like a team, we can achieve a positive result. We did it  in Africa’’

‘’I want the key players but they are not available, and this is why we have a big Squad and we need to show great fight spirit to win without them.’’

Avram Grant just entered his second year as Ghana coach.
