2014 World Cup: Ghana captain Gyan insists Black Stars will not be distracted by Portugal star Ronaldo

Asamoah Gyan says Ronaldo will not distract the Black Stars

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan insists they are not distracted by talk that Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo could cause havoc to the Black Stars when the two sides clash at the World Cup.

The UAE-based attackers says the Black Stars will focus on teams rather than being distracted by particular players during the group phase of the competition to be held in Brazil next month.

Ghana have been placed in the Group of Death as they will face a tough group with their matches against Germany, Portugal and the United States.

The Black Stars, making their third-straight appearance at the World Cup, open the campaign against the United States on June 16 before meeting Germany on June 21.

Then the final group game will be against a Portugal side which will be led by the Real Madrid star, Ronaldo, on June 26 in Brasilia.

Gyan knows Ghana will have to beat the best to keep their campaign going but warns focusing all their attention individuals will be a mistake.

"Ronaldo is the world player (of the year) and there is no doubt that he is critical to the cause of the Portuguese team but for us we are not going to be distracted because of him," Gyan said.

"I am not bothered because we are playing Portugal because the World Cup is the biggest stage and there are no small team. Every team who qualifies has done so on merit.

"We are playing against the best and we cannot do anything about that, we just have to get ourselves ready."

The Black Stars will start camping for the World Cup on Tuesday.

Do you think Ghana players can contain Ronaldo? Please make your views known in the box below:

    Ronaldo is good. He is very good. But if we possess the ball like we usually do and keep him from the getting the ball, I think we will do fine. In all our 9 world cup matches, I don't remember any team that outplayed or had more possession than Ghana. We can do it again and make sure we take our chances when they come unlike before.

    I think Ronaldo is not the kind of a player that the black stars of Ghana should focus on him.Ghana as a football nation going to the would cup for the third consecative times should not complicate themselfs With this mentality because he is not the only player in the portugues national team.If the stars could have been able to constract both defence and the midfield very strong and secure,then i think there will be no pressure on the black stars.To be able to stop high profile Squad in world cup stage is to go all out to Select strong and energetic fit players to do the jobb for mother Ghana.
