Ghana star Andre Ayew feels Zambians are making too much noise ahead of Friday’s big clash and must be shut down to give them a measure of their real size in African football.
The Chipolopolos must beat Ghana, the Group D’s leaders, in Kumasi or miss out of a dream 2014 World Cup ticket.
Ghana are keen on the game after failing to beat the 2012 AFCON title winners in a competitive fixture since 1992 and have named a crack squad featuring Kevin-Prince Boateng, Michael Essien and Andre Ayew.
But the South Africans, with their assembly of players from low-class amateur leagues in China and non league sides, do not seem worried by the class of Ghana’s star-studded congregation and have rather claimed the Black Stars are scared ahead of the game.
However, after touching down at the Kotoka International Airport from his base in France, Andre Ayew, the Olympique Marseille anchor has realised Zambians are ‘making too much noise’ and must be smashed into smithereens.
“It is a game we have to win for the nation because the Zambians are talking too much and they must be shut down,” he told Joy FM’s Ridwan Ibrahim Asante.
I missed playing for the nation and giving off my best to make sure we get to where we want to go. It is a great feeling to be back into the squad and see the guys again.”
Andre, together with Kevin-Prince Boateng and Jordan Ayew ended their international retirements to face Zambia.
