2014 World Cup: Legend Abedi Pele wants Black Stars to be fearless in Brazil

Abedi Pele says the Black Stars must be fearless at the World Cup

Ghana legend Abedi Ayew Pele says the Black Stars can have a successful World Cup campaign in Brazil if the players wipe out all forms of inferiority complex.

The triple African Footballer of the Year believes the current crop of national team players have quality to do well from a difficult Group.

Ayew, whose two sons- Andre and Jordan- are in line to make Ghana’s squad for tournament, says Kwesi Appiah’s side must be mentally toughness to make a mark.

“The Black Stars have every chance to do well and with the right mentality they can go far,” the Marseille legend, who is away in Switzerland, told

“All is panning out well and they can do well.”

The Black Stars open their campaign against old foes USA- coached by ex-Germany captain and coach Jurgen Klinsmann-on 16 June in Natal.

Ghana will then face Germany before a final Group G clash against Portugal.

    For once I agree with you Abedi. FEARLESS is a start. JJ Rawlings said they ought to be RUTHLESS. I agree with him. The USA have to fear them and not the other way around. They will be fine if they play like agains Czech Republic:
