2014 World Cup: Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah sees tough group as well balanced

Ghana coach James Kwesi Appiah is

confident the Black Stars can be

competitive at next month's World Cup

despite being placed in the Group of Death.

The Black Stars have been drawn in a tough

looking Group G alongside Germany, Portugal

and United States, but Appiah insists Ghana

won't fear their illustrious opponents.

"We play Germany, USA and Portugal in our

group, but we did get this far and we can't

underrate or overrate any team, the game has

come of age and it's any man's game," he said,

as reported FIFA.com .

"All teams in our group are strong, but we

can't fear them because our qualification

demonstrates our ability and potential.

"If you have qualified for the World Cup and

you fear your opponents, then you might as

well not go for the competition."

Ghana open their World Cup campaign against

United States on 16 June at the Arena das Dunas.

They then face Germany four days later in

Fortaleza's Castelão, before finishing the group

on 26 June with Portugal at the Estádio

Nacional de Brasília Mané Garrincha.
