Black Satellites sensational striker, Ransford Osei expects Ghana to be at their relaxing best when they lock horns against the England in a Group D second game at the Ismailia Stadium on Tuesday.
Ghana are on top of the group that has Uruguay also on three points but with a goal better and Osei tells GNA Sports, England will be under the most pressure in the game pundits has described as one of equal strength.
“We will play a relaxing game knowing England will be under pressure because they are without a point after one game. And that is a very good thing for us because relaxing means less mistakes and playing to your potential.”
The player was rather quick to add that relaxing was not a way of being complacent against the English side that conceded a late goal against Uruguay in their opener.
Osei told GNA Sports that the team will improve upon their first group game against Uzbekistan where they had to claw back from a goal down to turn things around.
“We will hopefully play an improved game and give it our all for a result that will favour our course.”
The perpetual optimist said the Satellites thirst for a performance that will underscore their credential as the African Champions and also produce the results that will ensure they have a smooth cruise to the next stage of the competition.
Osei pulled Ghana even on 60 minutes against Uzbekistan before Dominic Adiyiah sealed victory in 78 minutes and the former says the business of searching for goals remains unabated tomorrow.
Scoring seven times to emerge the goal-king at the African Championship in Rwanda earlier in the year, Osei tells GNA Sports replicating that feat will be special for him and the team.
Kick-off for tomorrow’s (Tuesday) game is at 21:30 GMT.
