Avram Grant: Team spirit Ghana’s key against Egypt
Ghana manager Avram Grant has stated that it will not be easy when they face Egypt at Borg El-Arab Stadium in the World Cup qualifiers.
Ghana had a poor start to their qualification campaign after they came out of their opening game against Uganda with just one point after a 0-0 home draw, while on the other hand, Egypt kicked off their games with a 2-1 away win against Congo Brazzaville to clinch an early leadership of the group.
The former Chelsea manager commented on the loss of Asamoah Gyan, who is set to miss the game due to injury.
“I am sure they [Egypt] are happy. Imagine that they entered the game without Salah and Elneny, we would be also happy. But if we play like a team we can achieve a good result, we need to show a fighting spirit as a team,” Grant told a Ghanaian radio station.
“We can get a good result. It will not be easy, I don’t want to say that Ghanaians are afraid but they are worried and they have the right to be so. Egypt is a very good team, I think it is a good generation for them. They are doing well, their key players are also playing very well with their clubs. They have five-six top players, so it will be a difficult game for us but we want to show that it will also be difficult for them.”
“Am I worried about the security in Egypt? I am a football coach, it is a game that united people. I don’t put this in my mind, I don’t care about the rest. I can promise the people in Ghana that we will give everything to have a good result against Egypt,” Grant concluded.
