However, George Afriyie is optimistic the four times champions will end their trophy drought in continental football at Egypt 2019.

"I believe with the right preparation and good timing, I believe we can win the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt," he added


The Black Stars will play Kenya in the final AFCON 2019 qualifier in Accra on March 23rd and have also lined up a friendly with Mauritania three days late
