Ghana will need a big slice of luck if they are to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, according to attacker Andre Ayew.

Ayew is adamant that his side will not give up their hopes of reaching Russia 2018, but says it is “close to an impossible mission”.

This is because Ghana find themselves five points adrift of leaders Egypt in their World Cup qualifying group.

“Nothing is impossible, but we can say it [qualifying for the World Cup] is close to an impossible mission,” Ayew is quoted by GHANASoccernet.

“I think the people that know me know that I never give up and in one game anything can change.

“So we have to say calm. We put everything in the hands of the Almighty Allah, but also in our legs because we have a lot of work to do.

“If we want to have a chance to go to Russia, then we have to win all the four games and expect that Egypt lose a game or draw two.

“So we are going to wait and see, [because] every game for us is a must win.”

For now, Ghana and Ayew will turn their attention to their opening 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ethiopia on June 11.
