The Ministry of Youth and Sports is ensuring that the Black Stars 'B' gets very well motivated to avenge the defeat they suffered at the hands of Burkina Faso in the first leg of their African Nations Championships (CHAN) qualification at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, Kumasi a fortnight ago.

As they play in the return leg this weekend, the team will be airlifted via a chartered Airforce flight to Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso on Saturday morning and return immediately after the match on Sunday night.

Even though the team lost at home in the first game, a qualification bonus will be paid for the two-legged encounter and not just a single match-winning bonus should they win in the return leg on Sunday.

All per diems due the team have been paid yesterday ahead of this crucial game against their Burkinabe counterparts to motivate them to put up a highly-spirited performance away to ensure qualification.

Ghana's quest to qualify for 2020 African Nations Championship (Chan) began with a disappointing start with a 1-0 home loss to Burkina Faso.
