Jordan Ayew promises ‘solid performance’ against Qatar today
Black Stars striker Jordan Ayew has urged his teammates to redeem themselves when they face Qatar in an international friendly today, Monday, October 12, 2020.
The 28-year-old said the team needs to deliver a solid performance following last week’s humiliating loss to Mali.
Ghana suffered a 3-0 defeat at the hands of their West African opponents last Friday, in a game where they were largely outplayed.
Ayew admitted that the Black Stars were not good enough on the day, but promised a better performance against Qatar.
“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,” the Crystal Palace striker told Ghanafa.org.
“But the most important thing is to have a very good performance as a team and obviously the result will follow. But also, 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.”
Jordan was named Foreign Footballer of the Year Award at the 45th Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) awards over the weekend.
