With the prospect of tackling global giants like hosts Brazil, champions Spain, Argentina and Germany, Appiah is resigned to a tough draw, but he remains confident in the quality of his players.
"You will definitely meet some teams ahead of you and some former winners. It's the biggest stage of world football and so that should be expected." Appiah told the GFA's website.
"My greatest concern is to have all my players available and without any injuries. I pray for that. I hope we arrive in Brazil with a solid unit and we will take it from there.
