Former Black Stars goalie George Owu has tipped Ghana as one of the countries that could win the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Ivory Coast next year January.
According to him, Ghana has what it takes to be able to win the tournament if they get proper preparations and adequate support.
Despite failing to impress in the last tournament held in Cameroon, Owu beleives Chirs Hughton’s side can boast of enough quality players and are capable of winning the tournament in Ivory Coast.
“This Ghana team can win the AFCON with the right support and motivation from Ghanaians,” he told Accra-based Onua FM.
Ghana will know their opponents for the continental challenge when the group stage draw is held on Thursday, October 12, 2023, in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.
Owu started his career with Sekondi Hasaacas in 2001 and joined Asante Kotoko in 2002 where he mounted the post for the Porcupine Warriors until 2004 when he moved to rivals Ashantigold SC in 2005.
He was part of the Ghanaian 2004 Olympic football team, which exited in the first round, having finished in third place in Group B.
Owu was Ghana’s Black Stars second choice goalkeeper at the 2006 African Cup of Nations in Egypt and was also part of the Black Stars when Ghana hosted the AFCON in 2008.
