Former Black Stars defender, Daniel Quaye, has insisted that Ghana cannot beat Portugal when both sides clash in Thursday’s World Cup tie in Qatar.
Quaye said that Portugal have depth in their squad, adding that Pepe is playing.
Portugal will clash with Ghana on Thursday in their World Cup opener.
However, Quaye, a member of Ghana’s first World Cup squad in Germany 2006, said as quoted by Ghanasoccernet: “It will be difficult for Ghana to beat Portugal, even at the time we had matured and experienced players we couldn’t beat them.
“If I were to be a betting company, I would have given Ghana (1,000 odds) and Portugal (500) because we cannot beat them.
“Look at the squad depth of Portugal, I know football is full of uncertainties, but this time I believe the best team will win. Pepe is playing, but in Ghana, we consider Jonathan Mensah and others as old players.”
