John Pantsil confident Black Stars will tame Cape Verde on Saturday

Posted On Friday, 1st February 2013

John Pantsil is the most experienced player in the current Black Stars set-up

John Pantsil says the Black Stars will put Cape Verde to where they belong when the two clash in Saturday’s quarter-finals.

The Ghanaians are brimmed with confidence ahead of the tricky tie against the Islanders at the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium in Port Elizabeth.

The Black Stars have a superior record against the debutant after winning three and losing just once in their last four meetings.

Coach Lucio Antunes is a very confident man having predicted the Blue Sharks will lift the trophy in their debut appearance.

But the Hapoel Tel Aviv ace admits their opponent will be tough, but believes the Black Stars have depth in quality to put them where they belong.

“We’ve watched three of their games and we also played them during the preparations for the AFCON in a friendly in Portugal,” Pantsil said at Friday’s pre-match conference

“I think they have a strong side, they have good strikers who are very good in the air.

“AFCON is a different ball game. We’re not expecting what we faced during the friendly game.

“Like the coach said we’re ready for everything, every corner, every angle.

“ We are waiting for the coach to bring his tactics for the game and then we’ll deliver.”

    Cape Verde might collect more goal from the net than Niger. i have never seen Black Stars so determined to beat any side since 1992. Cape Verde CANNOT stand in our way to the trophy. The trophy is coming to Ghana February 10,2013.
    My name is Kay and I approve this message.

  2. Fu-Chu says:

    Cape Verde should not be an issue for the Black Stars. Frankly, the only team that will cause a little concern is Cote d’Ivoire.

  3. selfmade says:

    Ghana is a different ball game all together and a sick Ghana is even very difficult to beat let alone a healthy Ghana which can score from opening player and the mere fact that is not only strikers scoring but all the players!! Cape verde will be annihilate,smacked and knockout with devastating haymakers and uppercuts to their small glass chin!!! There is no way they can defeat Ghana because history is against them and the occasion will be too much for them!! If Ghana can’t beat cape verde convincingly,then the wait is still on!!! We need to smack their small asses CONVENIENCELY to send a clear message to the rest of opponents that this time we mean fucking business!!!! Viva the revolutioncioooooooooo!!!!

    Cape verde shouldnt b a problem there too much determination in BS camp

  5. Anokwale says:

    This will definitely be closer than people think. I am not going to be too cocky about this game. Atsu has to rise to the occasion for this one. No one should sleep here.
