*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Ghana enjoyed a superb 2-1 comeback win over Mali on Thursday evening and that result pushed them to within touch distance of the summit in Group I. The Black Stars have a 75% chance of recording a follow-up victory at Central African Republic’s expense on Monday. The visitors have a poor record on the road and they have been priced as 6/1 outsiders for that reason.

Player to watch – Mohammed Kudus

Mohammed Kudus showed flashes of his quality in Ghana’s 2-1 win at Mali last time out and the 23-year-old is shaping up to be a potential match-winner for the Black Stars ahead of their meeting with Central African Republic on Monday.

Kudus has the quality to shine

Former Ajax starlet Mohamed Kudus has been a revelation since moving to West Ham in the Premier League and his haul of eight goals and six assists in his maiden campaign in England’s top tier highlighted the top-tier quality he wields.
