Ex-Ghana striker Felix Aboagye insists the Black Stars meeting against Egypt will bring the best out of the Ghanaian national team.
The Black Stars have drawn the seven-time African champions in a contest which has been touted as the pick of the qualifiers.
The Egyptians chalked a 100% record in the qualifiers while their Ghanaian counterpart lost one game during a rigorous group phase exercise in the 2014 World Cup group qualifying campaign.
The former Zamalek striker has expressed his delight with the draw and insists it will bring the best out of the Black Stars.
“When I heard of the news, I was very happy because they (Egypt) have beaten us for so long and it’s time to avenge those defeats,” Aboagye told Happy FM
“The Egyptian respect Ghana football. This is the greatest opportunity to break the jinx.
“I think the draw is good for us because it will bring the best out of our team.
“Let me tell you one thing. After all the problems that have engulfed their country, they would want to win to unite their nation.
“After killing themselves, they would want to use this game as a platform to bring the country together.
“On the other hand, after going through an eight-month long election petition in Ghana, the Black Stars would want to win to unite our country.
He added: “We should see the home game as the decider. They would attempt to frustrate us at home and at least grind out a result.
“So we must win with a huge scoreline to make the second leg a mere formality. Because we don’t have a chance against them in their own backyard.”
