Ghana’s in-form striker Jordan Ayew has insisted that the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations semifinal against Cameroon will be a very tough mission for the team but believes they will reach the final game.

"We have a very big game against Cameroon. It is a very tough game but we have to keep on going and do what we know how to do best which is to win games," Ayew was quoted as saying on Ghanasoccernet.

The Black Stars will face Cameroon in the semifinal of the continental tournament late on Thursday to determine who will face Egypt in the final game on Sunday.

The 25-year-old Ghana attacker, who was named the man-of-the-match in the quarter final clash with DR Congo, has hinted that he would love to score against Cameroon in the semifinals.

"As a striker, you always want to score but sometimes you score some goals that are really, really important and you see your teammates so happy," Jordan Ayew added.

"You see the bench so happy, the supporters so happy, you see the country so happy so when you see all these things, they make you so emotional," he explained.

"As a kid, I always dreamt of scoring in the big games so I thank God for that," the Swansea City striker concluded.
