2022 World Cup: We’ll do our best to get positive result against Portugal – Andre Ayew

Ghana captain, Andre Ayew, said the Black Stars will do everything possible to get a positive result in their 2022 World Cup Group H opener against Portugal on Thursday.

Otto Addo’s men will enter the game as underdogs, but Andre revealed the players will draw inspiration from Saudi Arabia’s shock win over Argentina on Tuesday.

Portugal is ranked 9th in the October FIFA ranking while Ghana sits at the 61st position, the lowest in the tournament.

Ahead of the game, Andre Ayew disclosed the Black Stars are aware there can be surprises at the global showpiece but will ensure they are ready for the clash.

“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.”

The game against Portugal will kick off at 16:00 PM GMT and will be live on Joy Prime TV.
