Andre Ayew has demanded his teammates to give everything on the pitch against South Africa.

Ghana will face South Africa in their upcoming Group C match. The Black Stars will hope to book their place in the  2021 Africa Cup of Nations. And captain Andre Ayew has a message for his teammates ahead of the clash.

Ghana skipper Andre Ayew has called on his men to fight for their place in Afcon.

“South Africa‚ we have met them a lot of times. Right now every team has its qualities so we have to block their qualities and use ours because at the end of the day we have great players‚” Ayew said as reported by Times Live.

“We have players who have confidence and players who want to prove a point and we have people who just want to die for the nation. We have to realize that we are playing for millions of people.

“Football is a game of a win‚ draw or a loss‚ but we have to give everything. We have to die, we have to run.

“We have to play and make sure that at the end of the day we can go home and look at ourselves and say we gave everything we had for the nation,” Andre Ayew said.

“It is not going to be easy. I can tell you that this qualification is going to be very difficult‚ but we will go through.”
