Andre Ayew is counting on Ghana’s youth and quality to beat the ageing but experienced Egyptian side in the 2014 World Cup qualifying playoffs.
The Black Stars will be facing the record African Cup winners over two legs to determine one of the five African representatives at next year’s event in Brazil.
Ghana must achieve a two-leg aggregate victory over the Pharaohs in order to make a third successive World Cup appearance.
Andre Ayew is however confident the unique combined attribute of youth and quality of the Black Stars will prove too strong for the ageing but experienced Egyptian team.
“We have very good and young players and their players are getting old but they have the experience,” he told Kessben FM.
“But we also have the quality so I believe this should be good enough to see us through.”
Recent history favours Ghana going into next month’s cracker at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.
The Black Stars secured an impressive 3-0 win over the Pharaohs in a friendly match in the lead up to the 2013 Nations Cup in South Africa.
