Black Meteors dynamic winger Evans Mensah has assured Ghanaians that they are ready for every challenge.
According to the diminutive dribbling player, the playing body of the Meteors is prepared to battle any team, anytime and on any day.
“The players have psyched themselves after the drawn game against Cameroon last Friday and we’re all battle ready for the subsequent games”, Mensah assured.
The former Inter Allies playmaker revealed that the team has been spoken to by the technical handlers after the first game and they are not going to take chances in their next game.
“After the first game against Cameroon, the coaches spoke to us about the game, especially what we did wrongly in the other game and what should be done in the next one so we’re not going to make it easy for opponents”, he stated.
According to Mensah, the team lost possession so easily in their first game and will not repeat same mistakes in tomorrow’s encounter with the host nation, Egypt.
“We were made to chase the ball all the time against Cameroon because of our inability to keep possession and when you play without the ball you become tired very quickly and that’s what we will change in our next game and rather force our opponents to do the chasing.
“We know the task ahead and we will do everything possible to make it to the next round”, he added.
Mensah won the man-of-the-match award in the opening game against Cameroon on Friday.
Ghana and Egypt will come face-to-face tomorrow, Monday, 11th at 6pm in the ongoing CAF U23 Cup of Nations in Egypt.
