Dede Ayew says Ghana’s ‘underdog’ tag will make us shine at World Cup

By on

Ghana midfielder Andre Ayew says Ghana is not under pressure to excel at this year’s World Cup after being tagged as underdogs in their Group.

Ghana is in Group G with European powerhouses Germany and Portugal and the United States of America.

Football pundits have predicted the progress of Germany and Portugal at the expense of Ghana and the USA in Group G and Andre Ayew believes, that will spur them on to make it to the knockout stages.

“When you look at our group we are not favourites, there are Portugal and Germany who are in front us and I think we are in front of the USA in terms of statistics,” he told Asempa Fm

“Portugal and Germany are considered as two of the best teams in the World, they will be in contention to win the World Cup so we are not under pressure we are just going there to play our hearts out.

“When you look at the statistics and all the analysis, people say Ghana won’t qualify from this group but in football anything can happen.

“We are going there with the aim of qualifying; we will fight with a lot of determination because we believe in ourselves and our coach.”

Ghana’s campaign at this year’s World Cup will begin on June 16, with a game against the United States of America.
