Kwesi Appiah is confident he will present a good squad to face Niger despite injury concerns.

The Black Stars will engage the Menas in their final group B game at the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium in Port Elizabeth on Monday.

The team are top of the group with four points, one more than Mali after defeating the Eagles 1-0 on Thursday.

The Ghanaians go into the encounter with worries over injury situation in the team.

Midfielder Anthony Annan remains a doubt with an ankle problem while striker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom is yet to recover from his knee problem.

Rising star Mubarak Wakaso is also suspended for the tie after receiving two yellow cards.

But the former Ghanaian international is confident they can thrive without some of his men.

?Apart from Wakaso and Boakye, the rest of them are doing well. Actually we?re going to train this afternoon so we will check the rest of them,? Appiah said

?But hopefully we should get a very good squad for Niger.

Appiah also confirmed Mubarak Wakaso as the man tasked to take penalties for the team.

?Before every game we choose at least three players to take penalty kick. During the game if Wakaso is not there, the next person will be available to take it.
