Speaking to sports journalists after training at the Accra sports stadium the pacy striker said there is no pressure on the team, but they will go all out to deliver.
“We are ready, we are confident of winning. We just have to go on the field, play, win and celebrate with the fans, we are very sure of victory” he expressed.

He said the Olympic Games is the dream of every sportsman or woman and he can not let the chance or opportunity slip.
He said Ghana has not won any major trophy in football for a long time and qualifying to Japan 2020 will be great.
