Youth and Sports minister Mustapha Ussif has stamped up strong feet in the Blackstars crucial World Cup qualifier against Nigeria.
The Blackstars fate is in their hands to get to the fourth World Cup by qualifying over Nigeria.
“If you look at what Ghana did in Germany, that was our first time at the world stage and we surprised the whole world.
‘In 2010 when we went to South Africa, we know everybody knows what Ghana did, Ghana represented the entire continent, not only Ghana, Ghana represented the entire continent and I’d want to repeat that.
“So historically, we have done so well anytime we have the opportunity to be at the world stage.’’
As it stands only three African countries have made it to the quarter-final and non have passed that stage.
Cameroon first in the Italia 1990 Worldcup before Senegal achieved the same at Korea-Japan 2002, and Ghana in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
And the minister also believes that Ghana will qualify for the World Cup and go past the quarter-final to make history.
‘’And I have no doubt at all that we are going to cross this bridge and to represent the continent again and this time we’re not just going to quarterfinals, but we will cross the quarterfinals level.”
Ghana are aiming to qualify for their fourth World Cup after missing out on the Russia 2018 edition.
The match will be played at the Baba Yara Stadium on March 25 and the return leg will
come off in March 29 in Abuja.
