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.

    That is the spirit. We fear no team...Ghana wants to win the World Cup and we have beat the best teams in the world to do that. Only the strong team that is prepared: physically, mentally and spiritually will survive to the end. There must be strong bond between the players, the players must support one another, and must have the desire to win no matter the opposition and huddles in their way, no matter the victimization and dirty tricks employed by referees and opposing teams. Black Stars are ready....

    GHANA means GOD HEALING A NEW AFARICA.Africa's mind and soul has been wounded for soo long by the white man but the time has come for some healing. The world heard of Ghana but now they will KNOW Ghana. (I will say these words until June 2014)Ghana will bring some new life to Africa this world cup.

    lol you guys should know that we had good defenders during the 2006 and 2010 world but this time our defense sucks inkoom is always giving the balls to opponents and imagine if you are playing against c ro who can score from anywhere. i dont see ghana going through though. and no matter how hard well try germany will beat us for sure. we should be sincere and stop these noise. we need to bring in more defenders.
