Ghana winger Albert Adomah insists the Black Stars will advance to the last 16 stage of the World Cup despite being put in a tight corner.

Kwesi Appiah’s side must overcome Germany on Saturday in Fortaleza to revive their bid in Brazil.

If they are successful, they must also overcome a Portugal side, who suffered bruises in their 4-1 defeat to Germany.

Adomah came on as a substitute in the 2-1 defeat to USA to make his tournament debut and he believes Ghana are still contenders to qualify

“The way I see it is that the other teams in there will all take points off each other. People might under-estimate us a bit and that could go in our favour,” Adomah told Gazette.

“Remember Ghana have got a good record in the World Cup, we are not novices. We almost made the semifinals last time.

“Plus we have a lot of talented young players like Chelsea’s Christian Atsu and Majeed Waris of Spartak Moscow so there is no reason why we can’t qualify for the next round.

“A lot of the players have been in this position before and hopefully that experience will really help us.”
