Portugal’s Ruben Diaz will be a tough opponent –Antoine Semenyo

Ghana international Antoine Semenyo has opened up on facing Ruben Diaz at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The Bristol City forward is one of the strikers named in Otto Addo’s squad for the World Cup in Qatar.

And according to him, he sees the Portugal defender as one who can pose threat to him at the mundial.

Semenyo is expected to play a role in the opener against Portugal on November 24 and the 22-year-old has already set sights on the clash against Manchester City’s Ruben Diaz.

“Portugal, Ruben Diaz, he will be a tough opponent and one of the best world. I want to see where I am at against him and push myself to the limit. I can’t wait,” he told Bristol City media.

Ghana will open their campaign against Portugal on November 24 at Stadium 974 in Doha.

Four days later, the Black Stars return to action with a clash with South Korea at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan.

Ghana will wrap up their group stage adventure with their much-anticipated encounter with Uruguay at Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah.

The Black Stars having missed out in the last edition hosted in Russia in 2018 will be hoping to improve their performance in Qatar after exiting the group phase during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Only three sides from the continent have ever progressed to the quarter-finals; Cameroon in 1990, Senegal in 2002, and Ghana in 2010.

Ghana will be hoping to progress from the group stage at this year’s tournament.
