Ghana winger Andre Ayew insists the Black Stars will further suppress Egypt in the 2014 World Cup qualifying play-off.
A magnificent Ghana side blew away the seven-time AFCON champions thrashing them 6-1 at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Tuesday’s encounter.
Captain Asamoah Gyan scored a brace to take his international goal tally to 39 while Russia-based Abdul Majeed Waris, Sulley Muntari and Christian Atsu all scored to added to a Wael Gomaa own-goal.
The 2010 quarter-finalist are considered huge favourites to reach Rio next summer after Tuesday’s emphatic victory but winger Andre Ayew who played a starring role in the Ghana victory insists the Black Stars are not yet done with the North Africans.
“We still need to work hard and complete this dream. Egypt are a decent side and we cannot be complacent. We are only a game away from Brazil and it is important to keep the focus,” the Olympique Marseille man told reporters after the game.
The Black Stars are well-placed for their third straight appearance at the World Cup.
The 2011 BBC African Footballer of the Year Award winner also expressed delight with the numbers that showed up at the Baba Yara Stadium.
“Today the fans came out to support us and with this kind of support it is always difficult not to give everything. We wanted to give something back to them for everything,” the 23-year-old added.
