President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kurt Okraku believes the Black Stars have the quality available to secure a fifth Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
Ghana will be hoping to end a long wait to win yet another AFCON title since last doing so in 1982. The Black Stars last made a final appearance at the continental showpiece in 2015, where they lost on penalties to Ivory Coast.
Milovan Rajevac’s side have an opportunity to end their trophy drought with the tournament taking place in Cameroon next year and the GFA president believes Ghana has what it takes to annex 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.”
The Black Stars will be in Group C of the tournament which kicks off on January 9. Ghana will begin its campaign against Morocco before facing Gabon and Comoros in the group stage of the competition.
