“And more importantly, I think we are in control of our destiny, which is a big thing considering that we are in the same group with the African champions. We have started well and hope to sustain this high tempo and qualify for the tournament in Morocco”, Le Roy told Radio France International.

The former Ghana coach hinged on their efforts to secure all three points away from home in the game against Nigeria.
