Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu believes the Black Stars have what it takes to reach a fourth successive Fifa World Cup.

Avram Grant's side will continue their quest to make it to the 2018 global fiesta with a match against Uganda at the Tamale Sports Stadium on October 7.

The fixture will be followed by games against Egypt and Congo.

"The national team has all the capabilities to qualify," Badu was quoted as saying by GNA.

"This [will be] the fourth time [and] we will fight for the country to win. I’m very confident that we’ll qualify.

"It’s not always about money. The players have the nation at heart despite all the negative perceptions about us. And [with] the fact that we [don't] put money before our work, I am 100 per cent or 120% sure that we are ready to work.

"We know where we want to take the country to and we are ready to move forward."

Ghana made their Fifa World Cup debut in 2006, progressing to the knockout stage where they bowed out against Brazil in the round of 16.

Four years later in South Africa, the Stars went a step further, beating the USA to make the quarter-final.

Ghana's last appearance at Brazil 2014, however, ended in disappointment after they failed to progress from the group stage.
