Ghana Under-23 head coach Akwasi Appiah claims he is not under pressure to deliver a qualification ticket for the All Africa Games on Sunday.

The Black Meteors boys face an uphill task of cancelling out a 3-1 first leg defeat against Nigeria in the final eliminator.

The rivalry between the two countries is gathering momentum ahead of the game, the soft-spoken former Ghana captain says he is remaining calm.

"The word pressure has never been part of me in my career. I always believe when you go into the game without pressure you can deliver your best and win. There is no need to play under pressure," he told Accra-based Citi FM

The finals of the All Africa Games will take place in September this year in Maputo, Mozambique.
