Ghana captain, Andre Ayew, says the Black Stars will do their best to get something from their 2022 World Cup Group H opener against Portugal on Thursday.
Otto Addo’s team will be underdogs going into the game, but Andre said Saudi Arabia’s shocking victory against Argentina would motivate the players on Tuesday.
Ghana occupies the lowest position in the competition, coming in at 61st in the FIFA rankings for October, while Portugal is rated ninth.
Andre Ayew said the Black Stars would make sure they are prepared for the match while knowing there can be surprises in the Mundial.
“We know that in these big tournaments there are lots of surprises that can happen, so we just need to be ready,” the Al Sadd forward said at the pre-match presser.
“The Saudi game [vs Argentina] was great and marvellous, but we need to think about ourselves and not look at what somebody has done.
“And we will prepare for our game, which we are going to do everything to get something out of it.”
