Ghana defender John Pantsil has told GHANAsoccernet that the Accra Sports Stadium is not a difficult venue for the national team.

The Black Stars will play for the first time in two years in Accra for Friday final home game for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Swaziland.

The Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi has hosted majority of Black Stars matches after the hosting of the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations finals.

Fans in the capital are said to be abusive and often tagged as boo-boys but Pantsil says his teammates will feel at home to play in Accra.

“No, it is not true we don’t feel comfortable playing in Accra,” the Leicester City right-back exclusively told GHANAsoccernet.com

“We have been playing a lot of games in Accra and the fans have always been supportive of us.

“We don’t feel pressure at all when playing in Accra we only have to believe in ourselves so it doesn’t really matter where we play.”

Ghana begin camping in Accra on Monday night and will train for the first time on Monday evening at the Accra Sports Stadium.
