Andre ‘Dede’ Ayew, captain of the Black Stars, has said that Ghana’s chances are far from gone in this year’s FIFA World Cup.
Attacker for Al Sadd says that even though Ghana lost its first game against Portugal, the squad has a tremendous desire to win its remaining matches and advance out of the group.
Ayew noted in a news conference after the 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 added.
Ayew, however, remarked that, with a victory in the next game, their luck would turn around, noting that 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,” Captain Ayew stated.
The Black Stars would take on South Korea in their second group game on Monday, November 28.
