Medeama’s Abass upbeat ahead of Sundowns clash

Medeama striker Abass Mohammed is confident his side will overturn the two-goal deficit against South African outfit Mamelodi Sundowns to book a place in the group stage of the Caf Confederations Cup.

The Ghanaians have it all to play for against the Brazilians at the Sekondi-Essipong Sports Stadium on Wednesday following a 3-1 away defeat in the first leg.

“We lost the game in South Africa not because we were outplayed,” Abass was quoted as saying by Ghana Fans.

“We took the lead and still continued to play well but as you know, in football, the slightest mistakes and lapse in concentration could change the outcome of a game, and that was exactly what happened to us.

“They took their chances and I also believe we have what it takes to overturn the results to our advantage. It is not beyond our reach. We will surely qualify.”

The frontman has scored three times in the Yellow and Mauves’ last two home matches in the competition, but insists his side would have to up their game to achieve success.

“The burden is huge,” Abass admits.

“I can’t do it alone. It’s a collective effort and we will do our possible best to make it happen.

“There are a lot of experienced players in the team. They have been here before, so we will tap into their wealth of experience and pray we get a good day.”

The winner over two legs will qualify to the group stage.
