2021 Afcon Qualifiers: We Know The Qualities Of Sudan But We Are Confident Of A Win

Ghana captain, Andre Ayew has admitted that the Black Stars are aware of the threat of Sudan but remain confident ahead of the game.

The Black Stars will host Sudan at the Cape Coast Stadium in the first leg encounter before the return game in Omurduman in five days time.

According to Ayew, he has played against the Sudanese and he is aware of the threat they possess but he is confident the Black Stars will emerge as the winners.

“I think its Unity. We have a lot of big teams in Africa now who are good. From the big names, Senegal, Cameroon, Algeria to the lower names like Sudan etc,” he said.

“Sudan is a team that I have faced before, I think we drew here in a very difficult game Kumasi so I know what Sudan is capable of doing but we are Ghana. And when you wear the Ghana jersey, you have to deliver, especially at home, so we have a choice.

“We are going to make sure that we get the three points so that, that Unity and that love between us stay and get even better with time.

“That is why we want more games, more camping so that we are able to meet each other more and more and create that love between each other.

The Swansea City ace also spoke on playing the game without supporters.

The Ghana Football Association [GFA] wrote to CAF to allow 25 percent of fans at the stadium but Africa’s football governing body rejected the request of the Ghana FA.

But according to the Black Stars skipper, playing without the support of the fans at the stadium will be difficult but insists the team will pocket all three points.

“Football is a game for the people so football without fans is a big thing because football is made for the fans and we are here to entertain,” he said,

“Even though it’s a very important entertainment, it has objectives ahead but its also something that people love. So, the fact that we don’t have fans difficult, especially at home, when I know what we saw here last year. It was something unbelievable, it was great, I loved playing at this stadium.

“I was looking ahead to playing here again. But we don’t have to get too sad about it. I think everything has its time.

“This Covid-19, I pray to God that very soon it will be out so that everybody can start his/her normal life, not only football but in everything we do. We are ready!” he added.
