Former Ghana international Augustine Arhinful has tipped the Black Stars among favorites to win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
Arhinful said Ghana together with some countries in West Africa have always tagged favorites to win the competition.
“We have a good team and I think the group is okay”, he told Happy FM on Ghana’s draw.
“The teams from the West Africa regions are always favorite so let’s count ourselves that we are favorites to win the trophy”
“Now there are no minnows in African football. How we prepare and select our players is the most important thing now”.
“We must prepare very well for the tournament”.
He added: “The coach must now do a lot of scouting, focus on his formation and set pieces. Let’s ask when was the last time we scored from a set-piece. We must work on all these things before the tournament”.
Ghana has been drawn against Morocco, Gabon and Comoros in Group C of the tournament.
The Black Stars will begin their campaign against Morocco on January 10, 2022, at Yaounde before taking on Gabon in four days time.
