Matthew James tells TheFA.com camera he knows what to expect from Ghana.
England midfielder Matthew James believes that there is enough ability and confidence in the Young Lions squad to emerge from Saturday's reverse against Uruguay and collect six points from the next two games.
Ghana are the opponents on Tuesday evening in Ismailia, followed by Uzbekistan on Friday and the Manchester United ace feels that given the performance on Saturday, there is nothing to be scared of in the remaining two fixtures.
"Everyone knows and has the belief that we can go on," James told TheFA.com from the team's Ismailia base.
"One win and a draw will be good enough and we're all confident we can do that in the next two games and even win both of them."
Of course, England expect a tricky match with Ghana, with the Africans containing a number of players who have already represented the Ghana senior team in the African Cup and James knows that England will face a considerable physical challenge.
"They're an African team and we know that they'll be very strong and athletic," added the 18-year-old.
"They have some good players and we saw some of them and Nana knew a few of them, one of them plays at Marseille and a few of them play in Europe, but they're always going to have decent players."
