Ghana coach Charles Akonnor says their focus his charges are solely focused on their mission against South Africa, rejecting claims that Sudan win at São Tomé and Principe will influence his team’s ambition in their match on Thursday.
The Black Stars will engage South Africa in the penultimate match of Group C in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
The West African giants are sitting at the summit of the log with nine (9) points same as the Bafana Bafana but have been joined by Sudan after the Falcons’ 2-0 win against whipping boys of the Group, São Tomé and Principe on Wednesday.
But coach Akonnor lightened the mood after he was quizzed if the Sudan win has added pressure on his team to return from the FNB Stadium.
“We are not going to look at what Sudan have done. We have to look at ourselves as a football nation. And our people are hungry, they want to see us qualify so it is important for us to do well tomorrow and qualify.”
