think as player or as it doesn’t matter if it’s the first team or the junior side, when every competition we go with the mindset of trying to achieve the ultimate goal which is trying to win the tournament.
So with our performance and hopefully if we can reach far I’m sure automatically we will obviously make sure that the image of Ghana is protected and like said before it’s game by game and we are fully prepared to face Congo.
We start with Congo today, every tournament is different but of course we have, we are playing at home so expectations are high and like said before the boys are ready we are ready to give our very best and then let’s see how the tournament goes but game by game we’ll be ready there’s no pressure you know why because think like said we are fully prepared we really have good squad our boys are ready and hungry so we don’t feel any pressure.

The Black Satellites will be looking to better their performance from the last edition in 2019 when they failed to make it out of the group stage. 

Ghana only managed to beat Burundi by two goals to one in the first group game and went on to lose to Mali & Senegal.
