Defender John Boye admits Ghana has been drawn in the toughest group amongst all the African teams that have qualified for the 2014 World Cup.

The Black Stars are placed in Group G alongside European giants; Germany and Portugal.

Ghana will also be facing USA for the third successive time at the finals that kicks off on June 12.

The Black Stars will be facing a technically gifted Germany team coach by the experienced Joachim Low who masterminded a 1-0 win for his side when they first met Ghana at the World Cup four years ago in South Africa.

Ghana will also come up against a Portuguese team armed with the immense quality of the current best player in the world Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Black Stars will however begin their third successive campaign against the USA – a team Ghana has beaten in its previous two appearances at the finals.

Defender John Boye who plays for French club Stade Rennes insists the Black Stars team is focused on making it out of the group despite conceding Ghana has been handed the toughest draw amongst the other four African teams going to the World Cup.

“It is a difficult group; I mean the most difficult group amongst the African teams at this World Cup,” Boye said on the World Cup television magazine show Destination Brazil.

“But God knows why he placed us in this group and now our focus is making it out of the group and going all the way.”
