Black Stars forward, Jordan Ayew has emphasized that the Black Stars aim at winning games at the 2023 AFCON and not to tour Ivory Coast.
Ghana began the tournament with a defeat to Cape Verde which has cast doubt about the team making it out of the group.
Speaking ahead of their crucial game against Egypt, Jordan pointed the team lacked concentration during the game against Cape Verde and that they would want to stay focused and be aggressive against the Pharaohs.
“We didn’t come here to visit Abidjan; we came here to win,” the Crystal Palace forward said, as quoted by Graphic Sport.
“The first game, we didn’t concentrate for 90 minutes, and that’s what cost us the game,” the 32-year-old said at a pre-match press conference, as quoted by 3Sports.
“The most important thing for us is to come back and stay focused. We have to stay aggressive and we’ll be fine. I have total belief in players and staff.
The Crystal Palace forward assured that the Black Stars will have a good day in their game on Thursday, January 18, 2024.
“I’m really confident tomorrow [Thursday] will be a really good day for Ghana,” he added.
The Black Stars will need a win to boost their chances of qualifying out of the group, whereas a defeat could hand them yet another group stage exit.
