Wafu Cup: Twum rallies support as Ghana, Guinea clash today

Ghana captain Isaac Twum in the opening match vs Gambia

Ghana skipper Isaac Twum is rallying for massive support as the group matches take centre stage on Thursday in the Wafu Cup of Nations.

The Black Stars will play against the Syli Nationale of Guinea at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.

Concerns have been raised after the team’s unconvincing display in the knockouts against Gambia on Saturday. The Black Stars laboured to win by 1-0 through a controversial penalty on the stroke of full time.

Speaking to the press, Twum believes with the support of Ghanaians, they can go all the way to the finals and win the ultimate.

“We were under pressure in our first game because we wanted to prove a point to Ghanaians. This distorted our style of play,” he explained.

“We have managed to qualify for the group stages. Nerves have calmed down and this will help us settle down and play our normal game.

“I’m pleading with all Ghanaians to offer their unflinching support whether in good or bad times. This will ginger us to go out all out.

“Withdrawing their support in this hour will go a long way to affect us in the tournament. It’s national affair not an individualistic approach.

“We are after nothing rather than the trophy,” Twum added.

Before Ghana take on Guinea, at 3pm, there will be a battle between the Eagles as Mali and Nigeria face off at the Cape Coast Stadium.
