Ghana defender Jonathan Mensah has urged Ghanaians to keep faith as they prepare to square off against Congo in the 2018 World Cup qualifier on Friday.

The four-time Africa champions are in danger of missing out on the ticket to next year’s global football fiesta after their poor start to the qualifying campaign.

Nevertheless, Ghana will hope to extricate their poor form by beating Congo in the third game of the group when they host the Red Devils of Congo at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Friday.


“You can never say it is a lost dream, because at the end of the day there are still a lot games to play before we get there, but it is a very tough hurdle,” Mensah told KweseESPN.

“Normally after two games we have four points, but now reality has hit us and we must deal with it.

“We basically need to win both games against Congo,” he added. “If we don’t win those two games it is over for us. We simply have to win them, because that will set us up really well for the Egypt game at home later,” he concluded.

The Black Stars will play the return leg on Tuesday September 5 in Brazzaville.
