Black Stars captain Dr. Asamoah Gyan belives pressure will be on his side in Ghana's 2018 World Cup qualifier against Congo Brazzaville today at the Baba yara Sports Stadium, kumasi.
The Black Stars are in third position in Group E with only one point after a draw and a loss to the cranes of Uganda and Egypt respectively in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers which will be held in Russia.
Gyan, 31, who was honoured a doctorate degree in July by Alfred Noble University based in Ukraine  believes there is now greater pressure after Ghana's poor start in the qualifiers.
''Right now there is a lot of pressure on us. It's quiet difficult, we drew at home and loss away. This is the third game the expectations are high. But what we need to do is win against Congo and keep our composure'' , Gyan told the press after the Black Stars final training ahead of the today's game.
There have been a lot of concern about the Kayseripor striker's fitness level after he was introduced in the 57th minutes in a 2-2 draw against Osmanlispor in the Turkish Super Lig before joining the Black Stars.
But the skipper declares himself fit for today's game.
'' I declare myself fit because i was available in my last game that is the most important thing. Training every day with my colleagues also speaks volume that am available for selection. Personally am available for tomorrow's game.''
The Black Stars are now six points adrift the leader's Uganda after the Cranes pip Egypt  in Kampala yesterday.
Ghana will know their faith as they faces the Red devils of Congo today at the ''slaughter house'' of the Black Stars, Baba yara Sports Stadium, at 3:30 pm.
