Captain of the Black Stars Asamoah Gyan says they are going into the game against Egypt with a winning mentality as they aim at protecting their pride.

The Stars failed to qualify for the World Cup with Egypt booking a place. Gyan has admitted that even though they failed to qualify they are very determined to win the game.

“We have the vim to play and win for the nation, we are playing for pride. Despite the fact that we did not make it to the World Cup, we have been more competitive. A win is going to help us move up in the FIFA ranking and also the game is offering the new players the chance to prove themselves to Ghanaians.” Asamoah Gyan told Media men after training.

The game is scheduled to be played at the Cape Coast Stadium on Sunday, November 12.

The Black Stars have not lost in their last three 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
