Striker Amr Zaki wants Egypt to settle their 2014 World Cup playoffs against Ghana in Kumasi next Tuesday during the first leg tie.
The 30-year-old has been named in Bob Bradley’s 26-man squad for the tough assignment at the Baba Yara Stadium.
Zaki, who played for English sides Wigan and Hull City, wants his teammates to aim for a win on the road.
”We will do our best to achieve victory in Kumasi before the second leg in Cairo,” Zaki was quoted as saying on his official website.
“Ghana are strong and full of high-profile players, but we believe in our abilities and we are not easy-to-swallow.
“We will fight during the 90 minutes and will keep our eyes on nothing short of victory; they must fear us and we have to show our character on the field.”
Egypt were the only side to finish the second round qualifiers with a 100 percent winning record.
