Asamoah Gyan: Egypt has a special team
Ghana is one of 20 teams that will be trying to qualify for the World Cup, as there are only five spots available for African countries. The Black Stars are a part of Group E, and will be facing off Uganda, Egypt and Congo with only the group winners advancing to Russia.
Ghana will kick off their World Cup campaign at home on October 7, against Uganda, and a month later they will travel to Cairo for a decisive match against Egypt. Ghana and Egypt faced off during the last World Cup qualifiers, when Ghana defeated Egypt 6-1 and qualified for the competition. Regardless of the previous results, Gyan heeded, “That match against Egypt was nearly four years back. They have a pretty special team and we will need to keep an eye on them.”
Ghana first qualified for the World Cup in 2006, and they were able to qualify in the 2010 and 2014 editions as well.
Gyan revealed that he was confident that his team will qualify saying, “Personally, I am pretty excited about the prospect of a fourth straight World Cup. But that will follow only if we keep our focus and do well in the qualifiers.”
