Former Ghana skipper Stephen Appiah says the Black Stars will do themselves good should they win the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations which will be staged in Gabon.
The Black Stars under head coach Avram Grant have gone on five matches Winless streak in all competitions.
Not only has the team failed to win the five matches, they also face a slim chances of qualifying for the global showpiece when will be held in Russia in 2018.
They have picked just a point out of a possible six points in their two qualifier games.
Ghana sit third in Group E of the African World Cup qualifying, trailing leaders Egypt by five points and second-placed Uganda by three points.
“I think many Ghanaians are not happy with the team and that is also a major factor [for the recent poor showing],” Appiah mentioned to Ghana Sports Newspaper.
“They [fans] have refused to support the team and it is really having an impact on them [Black Stars].
“For now, I think the only thing to win back the love of Ghanaians is to win the Cup of Nations in Gabon.
“If they are able to win it, Ghanaians will support them again and that will help them in the remaining matches of the Fifa World Cup qualifiers.”
The Black Stars who are looking forward to winning their first continental trophy since 1982 will play in Group D alongside Egypt and Uganda as well as Mali.
