The Rennes defender believes it is time for him and his colleagues to put smiles on the faces of football fans in Ghana by securing a place in next year's World CupBlack Stars defender John Boye has called on his team-mates to do all they can to qualify Ghana to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

“Every player wants to play in the World Cup and this is the World Cup qualifiers so is important for me and my other colleagues and we have to win against Sudan to even boost the morale of the fans that are down because of the 2013 Afcon,” Boye told reporters on his arrival.
“It’s an important game for us and so we must do everything possible to ensure we qualify to the World Cup. Ghanaians want to see us in Brazil and so we must do everything possible not to disappoint them.”
The Black Stars will hold their first training session on Tuesday afternoon in Accra ahead of Sunday's Group D game against the Nile Crocodiles at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.
