Black Stars midfielder, Thomas Partey has anticipated Ghana’s clash with São Tomé and Príncipe in the 2021 AFCON qualifiers to be a difficult match.
Ghana will play as guests to Sao Tome and Principe on Monday in their second Group C game in the on-going 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. The Black Stars began their campaign on a good note in the 2021 AFCON qualifiers with 2-0 win over South Africa at the Cape Coast Stadium on Thursday.
Sao Tome, however, aims to get back on track with a victory over the Black Stars after suffering a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Group C leaders Sudan.
São Tomé and Príncipe will host Ghana on the artificial turf at the Estadio Nacional which is very rare to the Black Stars who are used to natural turf on the continent.
Nevertheless, the Atletico midfielder claims his colleagues will rise above every limitation as professionals to earn the maximum points for the country.
“I think we are going to a difficult match; we are not used to playing in artificial turf but we have to get used to it and I think we are motivated enough.
“We are going to a game where we don’t have to expect less, we have to make sure we do our best and get a win.
Ahead of the game, the Senior National Team trained at the Madina artificial turf to familiarise and condition themselves for the task ahead.
