Ghana find themselves third in Group E of the qualifiers, four points behind leaders Egypt, and their chances of appearing at a fourth successive World Cup appear slim at best.

"It [the group] is still open".

The 25-year-old sustained an injury in the previous game against Congo and has been advised by his club to rest after playing through pains recently. "Ghana won't make it easy for them", Onyango told Kickoff.

"We are still monitoring and that is why it is a national team, you don't always depend on few players".

The last time the two countries faced each other in a World Cup qualifier in Kampala was on July 3, 2004 when Asamoah Gyan scored a late equaliser to rescue a point for the Stars in a 1-1 drwn game as Ghana turned therir campaign around to qualify for the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
