Ghana Black Stars captain Andre Ayew has said that Ghana’s chances are far from gone in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
According to the 32-year-old Al Sadd attacker, the Black Stars squad has a tremendous desire to win its remaining matches and advance out of the group even though they lost their first game against Portugal.
Ayew in a news conference after their 3-2 defeat to Portugal in their World Cup opener game that Ghana’s performance was marred by many critical errors.
“In football you would always pay for your mistakes, and that is what happened to us.
“We made some errors, and they punished us for that. The last two goals from Portugal were so quick we could not recover, but we have always survived difficult conditions and we would come back good,” he said.
However, the Ghana Black Stars remarked that their luck would turn around with a victory in the next game, noting that this is not the first time as they had always managed to triumph over adversity.
“We qualified for the world from a very difficult group and conditions. I know this team we always get out of very difficult conditions.
“I am convinced we would return good in the next game. We showed good character in the game against Portugal, and we can make things better in the next game,” Ayew stated.
