"I can assure you that they are working hard on and off the pitch, so I am very sure that we won't disappoint our nation and Africa Ghana has shown in the past that they can compete at the highest level and when I see their training and look at how they played in recent games, I strongly believe that we can do some miracles,” Ghana coach Otto Addo said.
