Asamoah Gyan, a legend in Ghana, predicts that the Black Stars would easily advance from their group.
Ghana has been placed in Group H together with Portugal, South Korea, and Uruguay after securing qualifying for the World Cup.
Asamoah Gyan thinks the Black Stars have what it takes to advance from their group, despite the fact that several Ghanaians did not rate the team’s chances before to the international competition.
“We can qualify from our group with ease,” he said in an interview on a Kumasi-based FM station.
“In 2006, we were the underdogs and coming up against the Czech Republic and Italy, they did not give us the chance but we went there and we performed.
“In 2010, the same things happened. We went there and lift the flag of Ghana high by playing in the quarterfinals which was an improvement.
“Before you can win the World Cup, you need to qualify from your group which is possible so I believe that these players can do that.
“The players must believe that they can do it and that it is possible,” he added.
At Stadium 974 in Doha, Ghana’s campaign will get underway against Portugal on November 24.
The Black Stars are back in action four days later when they play South Korea at Al Rayyan’s Education City Stadium.
At Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah, Ghana will conclude their exciting group stage journey with their much awaited matchup with Uruguay.
In their most recent World Cup appearance in Brazil, the Black Stars were unable to advance past the group stage.
