Ghana captain, Andre Ayew has talked about how hosting South Africa in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in Cape Coast is an added boost to get all 3 points in their clash on Thursday.
In what would be their first challenge since a poor Round of 16 exit at the 2019 championship, Ghana are about to face Bafana Bafana in a Group C matchday one fixture in the race to Cameroon 2021.
Because of recent disappointing games in Egypt, the Black stars need a good result to make amends today.
Speaking ahead of the clash, Ayew said, “It won’t be an easy match but we want to win in front of our fans,”
“A football player is one who wants to get back from a setback. We want to do well for our country and we want to qualify from this group.
“There is always a responsibility on us to make sure we make our country proud. We accept this responsibility.
“We won’t always get it right but we are determined to be up there again. You don’t play in the national team without pressure.
“As the leader of the side, it is my responsibility to psyche up my colleagues and make sure that we make our nation proud always.”
