Ghana's Mohammed Rabiu to play 'sacrificial lamb' role at AFCON

Published on: 05 February 2013

Ghana midfielder Mohammed Rabiu is determined to go all out in the semi-final game at the 2013 Nations Cup despite being on a yellow card.

The 23-year-old risks getting suspended for the Black Stars’ final game of the tournament if he picks up another yellow card.

He got booked in the hard fought 2-0 win against Cape Verde in the quarter-final last Saturday.

Rabiu has been one of the revelations of the tournament – putting in a total dedicated performance whenever selected.

He says he is not afraid to put in the necessary tackles to help Ghana qualify for the grand-finale even at his expense.

"I am not afraid because we have a lot of players in the team as well,” the Evian TG player told

"We are 23 players – meaning everyone can play. So for me I am not thinking about my yellow card, I only want to help the team to win and qualify for the final.

"So I will be going into the next game with full confidence and ensure we make it to the final."
