We should take the fight to them – Sannie Daara on Black Stars’ game against Portugal

A spokesperson for the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Ibrahim Sannie Daara, says the Black Stars should not be intimidated by the Portuguese national workforce forward of their first game on Thursday.

According to him, the workforce should perceive that the Portuguese regardless of having some world class players are “mortals like us and we should let them also have a taste of our medicine.”

Speaking on JoyNews’ PM Express, he said the Ghanaian players should not enable themselves to be pressured by Portugal.

He urged them to take the warmth to Portugal like they did the Swiss national workforce in the friendlies.

“I think we should take the fight to them. They’re mortals like us even though they’ve got some world class players that we have to respect, but they’re mortals like us and then we should let them also have a taste of our medicine.

‘If we say we want to sit back, they can press and press and press. But if we take the game to them like we did against Switzerland, we will create a big history. So I don’t think we should sit back, we should not soak the pressure, we should also let them feel our pressure.

“We’ve got talented players, players who can make something out of nothing. If you have Partey around the box he can hurt you at any time, Mohammed Kudus can hurt you, Inaki Williams can hurt you. We should let them have a taste of this medicine,” he said.

Meanwhile, Sannie Daara has supported Coach Otto Addo’s resolution to stay silent on Ghana’s beginning lineup.

He explained that whereas revealing the beginning lineup has been a standard function in Ghanaian football, it was time Ghanaians adopted change and an element of shock forward of their matches.

“I like the way Otto is playing everything close to his chest. Why do we want to know everything before [the game?] It’s like putting your armory before the enemy before the war begins. So let’s understand some of these difficulties and some of these modern things in football and appreciate the fact that they’re doing a terrific job,” he said.
