Ghanaian forward Jordan Ayew has expressed determination and optimism ahead of Ghana’s crucial 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) group stage match against Egypt.
Following a disappointing 2-1 loss to Cape Verde in their opening match, Ayew acknowledged the team’s precarious position but vowed to fight for a significant improvement.
“Tomorrow is going to be a tough game, and the boys are ready. We put ourselves in a difficult position, and we’ll fight to put in a better performance,” Jordan Ayew stated
Aware of the need for a win to avoid early elimination, he added, “I have a strong feeling we’ll all have something to smile about after this game.” His words resonate with a nation desperate for redemption and a place in the knockout stages.
Ghana faces the Pharaohs of Egypt on Thursday, January 18, at the Stade Felix Houphouet-Boigny, with kick-off scheduled for 20:00 GMT. This clash is pivotal for the Black Stars’ AFCON aspirations.
