2022 World Cup: Black Stars need good preparation to beat Portugal and Uruguay – Emmanuel Agyemang Badu
Great Olympics midfielder, Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu believes the Black Stars need good preparations to be able to beat Portugal and Uruguay at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The West African heavyweights have been paired with against old foes, Portugal and Uruguay.
However, the former Udinese Calcio and Asante Kotoko midfielder is of the view Ghana cannot revenge against the two countries without proper preparations.
“I heard our gallant supporters and ourselves talking about revenge but revenge comes with good preparations,” he told Accra-based Radio Gold.
“Without good revenge, you won’t be able [to revenge] and I don’t want us to focus on Uruguay or Portugal because people are saying because of Ronaldo and other people are saying because of what Luis Suarez has done to us in South Africa.
“Football has changed and we should move on from this and the most important thing is we need to prepare very well and we need to prepare game after game.
“Preparations first then we take game after game, revenge? I don’t buy that kind of argument,” he added.
Ghana, who have been housed in Group H will open their campaign against Portugal on November 24 at Stadium 974 in Doha.
Four days later, the Black Stars return to action with a clash with South Korea at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan.
Ghana will wrap up their group stage adventure with their much-anticipated encounter with Uruguay at Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah.
The Black Stars will open camp on November 10. The team will play Switzerland in Abu Dhabi in their final preparatory game before flying to Qatar on November 19.
