Jordan Ayew says the Black Stars will have to put in a good performance in their clash against Qatar today to appease Ghanaians following their poor show last week.
The Black Stars in their first match since November 2019 were not at their best as they were defeated by Mali in a friendly, in Turkey at the Emir Sports Stadium.
The Malians walloped the four-time AFCON winners 3-0 on Friday night as they result was a bitter pill for Ghanaians to swallow.
The team received barrage of criticisms and speaking ahead of the Qatar game, Jordan Ayew believes the team must do better.
“It’s a game where we have to do better. We weren’t good enough in the first game, we all know, we are all professional players and we all know we didn’t` do well against Mali and we need to do better and at least start by having a good solid performance and after, the results will follow. But the most important thing is to have a very good performance as a team and obviously the result will follow,” Ayew told GhanaFA.org.
While promising an improved performance, Jordan Ayew is also creating the awareness to Ghanaians to not ignore the realities of how difficult a rebuilding process can be.
“let’s have in mind that we are building a new team and it’s going to take a bit of time so we need to be a bit patient. We need to make sure that we don’t repeat the mistakes that we did a couple of days ago we make sure we don’t repeat them tomorrow and make sure that we put in a solid performance to redeem ourselves,” he said.
Ghana against Qatar comes off today at the Mardan Sports Complex in Antalya, Turkey at 3:30 pm.
