Ghana deputy skipper, Andre Ayew says the Black Stars are a better side if they give their 100 per cent against Mauritius.
The Black Stars will be in action on Sunday against Mauritius in the last 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifier.
Speaking to Class Sports, Ayew, who will captain the team in the absence of substantive captain Asamoah Gyan, said the team was focused and determined to qualify for Gabon 2017.
“I have done the job a lot of times in the past and it will happen again, so what is important is that we try to keep the unity in camp. We know we are the better side if we give our 100 per cent. But we do not have to underrate Mauritius and do what we know to do best, that is, score the goals, get the three points, and prepare for Gabon,” he said.
The Swansea City playmaker expressed satisfaction with the performance of the new players called into the team.
Ayew said: “It is good but we don’t have too many new boys because most of them have come before, and I think they are coping very well. There are young guys coming in and most of them are playing in Europe and the local ones who have joined the team are also doing very well.”
