AFCON AFCON 2023: Ghana must up game to beat Egypt and Mozambique – Djiku

Ghana defender Alexander Djiku has called on his teammates to be more aggressive in their play to stand the chance of beating Egypt and Mozambique in the two remaining group games.

The Black Stars crashed to a painful 2-1 defeat to Cape Verde in their opening Group B game at stade Felix Houphouët-Boigny on Sunday – leaving them at the bottom of the group with no point.

The Montpellier born defender, who put up a world class performance in the defeat to the Blue Sharks, was left disappointed by the outcome of the game but believes the team has the ability to win the next game.

“It is so difficult but we need to do more,” said Djiku as quoted by Ghana FA Media, adding: ‘‘We need to be more aggressive, we need to play more, we need to create more chances and we need to also score.We have another game and we need to win that one.”

Djiku made his Black Stars’ debut in October 2020 against Mali in an International friendly and has gone on to play 25 times and scored two goals for Ghana. He currently plays for Turkish Super Lig club Fenerbahce after stints with Bastia, Caen and Strasbourg in France.
