Minister of Youth and Sports Elvis Afriyie-Ankrah Sports says he was satisfied with Monday’s talks with FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke  but insists the right thing will be done before the match.

FIFA will meet Ghana and Egypt officials again on Thursday in Cairo to give further assurances over the safety of the team and officials will go ahead in Cairo.

Ghana have on two occasions asked FIFA to move the November 19 match to a neutral venue because of the unrest and outbreak of violence in the Egyptian capital.

FIFA General Secretary Jerome Valcke met officials from Ghana in Lome to discuss the safety of Cairo.

“Let me assure Ghanaians that we are not afraid or worried about the football match itself because there is no man, woman or devil that can stop us from going to Brazil,” Afriyie-Ankrah said.

“We are going to Brazil and no man born of a woman can stop us but at the same time we have to take precautions because we are going into a very volatile territory and so we are asking relevant questions in if scenario A what are the guarantees, what if this what are the measures, what if that what have you put in place.

“We just want to ensure that the way we have gone through all these qualifiers without any incident we will go for this final one which happens to be the last qualifier for the whole World Cup, we will go through peacefully, successfully and then we prepare for Brazil.”

    just psyche the players up and let them know that nothing apart from victory in Cairo will appease the fans because of fifa’s stubbornness. go kill off the game and seal qualification in grand style! whether in Cairo, abuja, calabar, sokoto or Maiduguri, …. Egypt 1 Ghana 2!

    GFA MUST REPORT THE LASER BEAM LIGHTS TO FIFA BEORE IT’S TOO LATE. THERE WILL BE 100?S OF LASER LIGHTS THAT WILL BE THROWN AT OUR PLAYERS, ESPECIALLY THE GOALKEEPERS EYES TO BLIND HIM. THIS IS TOTAL CHEATING. OUR PLAYERS SHOULD STOP PLAYING THE GAME WHEN IT HAPPENS. THROWING LASER BEAM LIGHTS IS AGAINST “FIFA’S FAIR PLAY POLICY” IT’S TOTAL CHEATING AND IT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESS BEFORE THE GAME START. LASER BEAM LIGHT IS A TERRORIST WEAPON. IT CAN BE USED AGAINST A PILOT FOR HIM TO CRASH THE AIRCRAFT, BECAUSE IT CAN MAKE HIM NOT TO SEE FOR A WHILE. EGYPT WILL EMPLOY EVERY TACTICS POSSIBLE TO SCORE 5:0 AGAINST US, SO PLEEEEAAAASSE GFA DO SOMETHING. TALK TO FIFA ABOUT THE THROWNING OF LASER BEAM LIGHT AGAINST OUR PLAYERS. THEY HAVE USED THIS TACTICS AGAINST KOTOKO MANY TIMES THEY VISITED EGYPT.
