Black Galaxies midfielder David Sandan Abagna says the team has their future in their hands with regard to qualifying to the next round of the 2022 African Nations Championship (CHAN).
Ghana suffered an opening-day defeat to Madagascar in the first game of Group C, failing to overcome the islanders as they succumbed to a 1-2 defeat.
Abagna played full throttle in the loss to Madagascar but believes the game against Sudan is a game that means they have to do everything to stay in the competition.
“It is always good to see your opponent play because it gives you an idea of what to expect and helps in your preparations. What is important for us is to learn our strategy and focus on executing it to our very best and not be too concerned with the fact that Sudan are yet to play. It is in our hands and we have to represent our country with pride” said Sandan.
The playmaker also stressed that they have put their mistakes behind them and that everything is now focused on the task at hand.
“The loss is now behind us. Yes, we were disappointed, but the tournament is still open for us to do well. It will not be an easy game. All the teams that are here are very competitive, so we will need to ensure that we execute our plan accordingly and give it our best shot” he concluded.
Ghana’s game against Sudan kicks off on Thursday, January 19 at 7PM.
