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.

    Sit there and continue blabbing. Your problem is that you make good selections but your formation is always wrong. Change to a good formation and victory will be yours on Sunday.
