2019 AFCON: Tunisia are no pushovers- Andre Ayew

Black Stars captain Andre Ayew is expecting a tough battle against Tunisia in their round of 16 clash at the Nations Cup on Monday.

Speaking to reporters after Ghana’s training session on Friday, the 29 year old was under no illusion about the difficulty of the task at hand.

“The game versus Tunisia is going to be a tough one. When a team comes out from the group stages unbeaten you have to have a lot of respect for them. It’s true that they are yet to win a game but if you watch their game you can see that they are a solid team. So it’s going to be a very very tough game and we need to be focus and 100% ready to avoid surprises”

Ghana guaranteed qualification to the knockout stage after beating Guinea-Bissau 2-0 in their final Group game on Tuesday.

The result meant the four-time winners top Group F on goal difference ahead of Cameroon who played out barren draw with Benin other simultaneous kick-off in Ismailia.

Meanwhile the Carthage Eagles came third in Group E, after picking three points from three games to set up the date with the Black Stars.

The Round of 16 fixture is set for Ismailia Stadium on Monday, July 8.

Ghana are seeking to end a 37-year wait for an African title, having last won the trophy in 1982.
