Ghana's No. 1

No pressure to beat Swaziland-Opare

Published on: 02 September 2011

Ghana defender Daniel Opare says they are not under pressure to beat minnows Swaziland on Friday in the 2012 Nations Cup qualifier.

The Black Stars top Group I on goal difference and are fancied to thump the Swazis who have been woeful in the qualifiers.

Opare missed the first leg 3-0 win at the Somhlolo Stadium last September but has clawed into the team and was impressive in the 3-1 thrashing of Congo in Kumasi in June.

The Standard Liege ace believes his teammates will meet expectations at the Accra Sports Stadium.

"It's not really called pressure, we just want to impress and improve on what the coaches have taught us," told

"I think they (Swaziland) are more scared of us and all we have to do is stay focused and make sure we get the job done from the 1st to the 90th minute."
