Togo captain Emmanuel Adebayor believes his side can pull off a massive surprise by beating Ghana on home soil to qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Hawks must secure an unlikely win over the Black Stars in their final AFCON qualifier in Tamale on Wednesday to clinch one of the two automatic qualification slots available in Group E.
Togo are highly unlikely to secure the surprise result especially after falling to a 3-2 defeat to Ghana in the first leg encounter back in September.
But the Tottenham Hotspurs striker is urging his international teammates to draw inspiration from that defeat to secure their qualification for next year’s finals to be staged in Equatorial Guinea.
“What Ghana came to do in Kégué [back in September], we can and must do in Tamale. We can do,” Adebayor said.
“It will be a tough game, but we must give one hundred percent to win the qualification.”
A draw will be just enough for Ghana to sail through but Togo needs an outright win on Wednesday on away grounds to make the finals.
