The striker is eyeing three points against the Pharaohs to put smiles back on the faces of Ghanaians

Ghana striker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom hopes the Black Stars finish on a high following a disappointing campaign in 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifying.

A match to end the series, the Black Stars are confirmed out of next year’s global gathering as group leaders, Egypt, four points clear at the top, have already claimed the sole ticket to the tournament.  

Boakye believes the least his outfit can do by way of appeasement in the current situation, is to beat the Pharaohs in Sunday’s dead rubber.

''I think it's an opportunity to showcase to Ghanaians that we have a united and good team. We can make amends for not qualifying to the World Cup,'' the Red Star Belgrade striker said, as reported by Ghana Web.

''For me, every day is a new challenge. I'm always trying to give my best, be disciplined and listen to the coach and listen to those ahead of me - like Asamoah Gyan.

''I always believe in what God will give to me because what He says is true, not what I say.''

It will be the first time the Black Stars play at the Cape Coast Stadium. For Boakye, the signs have been encouraging.

''Since I came, I have seen an amazing support from the Cape Coast people,” he noted.

''I have never been here to play football before but as I am here, I can see that they really support the nation.

“It's a great feeling to have a city like Cape Coast to be supporting you and I think we are going to give our best to satisfy them.”

Boakye netted two goals in Ghana’s last two qualifying games.
