President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kurt Okraku believes the Black Stars have the quality that will allow them to win their five-time Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
Ghana is hoping to claim another AFCON title, since winning last in 1982. The Black Stars last made a final appearance at the continental championship in 2015, but were defeated on penalties by the Ivory Coast.
Milovan Rajevac’s team has an opportunity to break their trophy drought by winning the tournament set to take place in Cameroon next year. The GFA president is of the opinion that Ghana is in the right position to claim the title.
“Currently we have qualified to the AFCON (2021), people think that it is a given, but it has come through hard work, and soon we shall be in Cameroon to try to rewrite history,” Okraku said during the Executive Council’s meet the press in Kumasi.
“It’s been 40 odd years since Ghana won the AFCON, but I believe we have a group of super-dedicated players who want to write their names in history and who would fight for glory and honour for Ghana at the AFCON,” he added.
Ghana’s Black Stars are in Group C of the tournament, which starts on January 9. The Black Stars will kick off the campaign against Morocco before taking on Gabon as well as Comoros in the stage one of the tournament.
