Former Ghana international Augustine Arhinful believes the Black Stars are among favorites to win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon next year.
Arhinful says Ghana together with some countries in West Africa have always been tagged favorites to win the continent’s biggest 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.
Charles Akonnor’s team will begin their campaign against Morocco on January 10, 2022, at Yaounde before taking on Gabon in four days time.
