Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan is certain the Black Stars will make it out of a difficult World Cup group including Germany, Portugal and USA.
The Black Stars will be facing old foes in Germany and the USA in the group phase at next year’s event in Brazil.
Ghana will again have to account for a talented Portugal team led by Cristiano Ronaldo - who many believe is the current best player in the world.
Many pundits have already predicted the progress of the two European giants at the expense of Ghana and the USA.
But Gyan believes the fortified Black Stars team full of world class experience and budding talents will again prove many sceptics wrong as they have done in previous World Cup campaigns.
"It happens to us always, the most difficult group, the group of death, but we have a good selection to rival any team,” the Ghana captain told Accra-based Asempa FM.
“We don’t fear Germany, Portugal or even the United States.
"Ghanaians can be rest assured; we will qualify and make the country proud again.
"There is great teamwork and coordination among us, so we will work hard.”
Ghana will begin its campaign in Brazil against USA before facing Germany and then Portugal.
The Black Stars aim at going at least one better than their quarter final finish last term in South Africa.
