Black Stars captain Andre Dede Ayew has assured fans that the senior national men’s soccer team will win their final game at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations and advance to the knockout stage.
If Ghana defeats Comoros on Tuesday, January 18, they will have a chance to qualify as one of the three third-placed teams.
On Friday, the team surrendered a 1-0 lead to draw with Gabon at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium in Yaounde.
However, during the post-match press conference, Al Sadd midfielder, who was named Man of the Match, stated that they will defeat the Island nation and advance to the Round of 16.
“We are Ghana,” he insisted. “We are going to win the last game and go through.”
“We had the ball and we put it out intentionally because our player was on the floor.
“So what do we do? When the ball is coming, you take the ball, Gabon, and give it back to Ghana. [It is as] simple as that!
“So, we were waiting for the ball to come back but the ball was not coming back and they played and that’s how they got their only open chance of the game. That is it.
“It is very small of them. I am disappointed in them.”
