Ghana youngster Kamaldeen Sulemana believes that the relatively young Black Stars team can withstand pressure as a group.
According to him, football is full of pressure which makes it normal for them, (players) to handle it in a way that won’t affect their performance overall.
The team is set to open camping for their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON] qualifiers against Angola in a home and away clash.
“It’s self-motivating for us as young players. We know Ghanaians see us as the future and that is a big responsibility. I think we can handle it,” Sulemana told the BBC.
“If you can’t handle the pressure against you, you just stay at home and don’t play football because in football, there’s pressure every day.
“Football is a game of opinions, you know, some people will believe in us and others won’t. That’s just how football is,” he added.
It remains to be seen how much further involvement elder statesmen such as 33-year-old Andre Ayew and his brother Jordan, who is 31, will have.
