Coach Kwesi who is aiming at ending Ghana’s long wait for the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) trophy has indicated that the four times champions are in a tough group.

"We have the defending champions in our group [Cameroon], Benin and Guinea Bissau I think they are all strong teams. For them to qualify, that means they're doing well," he said.

"The most important thing is we need to prepare well so that whichever team comes our way we'll be able to give them a very good game."

Ghana will commence their campaign with a clash against the Squirrels of Benin on 25th June, before engaging Cameroon on 29th June.

Ghana last won the AFCON in 1982 in Libya
