Tetteh expects ‘challenging’ opposition from Mozambique

Ghana winger Samuel Tetteh says the Black Stars are leaving no stone unturned as they prepare to take on Mozambique in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers this week.

Ghana will play their Mozambican counterparts at the Accra Sports Stadium on Thursday, three days before the return leg in Maputo.

“We’re expecting a very challenging opposition from Mozambique,” Tetteh toldCafonline.com. “There’re no longer easy teams anywhere, and it’s with that understanding that we’ll approach this match.

“Experience has proven that teams that meet Ghana also prepare extra because of our pedigree. It makes matches even tough and oppositions more challenging. It’s obvious that they’ll come to play and hope for a result.

“It’ll be our duty to stay alert throughout and keep the dream going. Playing two matches in three days means keeping focus and be ready for the challenge every step of the way. As a team, I can confidently say that we’re ready to do well.”

With four goals in five matches in the Ghana Premier League, including a matchday three hat-trick, the 19-year-old Wafa attacker also touched on the impact of lining up for the Black Stars on his burgeoning career.

“I feel very happy about this chance,” Tetteh added.  “It’ll do a whole world of good to my career and to me as well.

“It’ll boost my confidence and help my growth a great deal. I expect to learn so much with the team that is filled with talented and experienced players.”

Tetteh represented Ghana at the 2015 Fifa Under-20 World Cup as well as the All-Africa Games same year.
