Abdul Razak, one of the ambassadors for the 2017 AFCON has rated Ghana among the five favourites to clinch the continental showpiece.

Razak, fondly called ‘Golden Boy’, Karim Abdul Razak is unarguably one of the most talented players in the history of African football. Now in his 60’s, the Ghana and Asante Kotoko legend gets another opportunity for yet another experience in the Africa Cup of Nations, a competition he won in 1978.

Together with Senegal legend Khalilou Fadiga and ex-Gabonese defender, Francois Amegasse, Razak will assist CAF General Secretary Hicham El Amrani in the draw process on Wednesday, 19 October 2016 in Libreville.

Ahead of the draw, ‘Golden Boy’ had a chat with CAFOnline.com on his expectations for next year’s tournament.

"Ghana is always one of the favourites, Algeria, Cote d’Ivoire, and Senegal too. I may add Egypt despite being in a transitional period with a new team after the retirement of the generation that won in 2006, 2008 and 2010"
