As Ghana prepares for the AFCON competition scheduled to take place in Cote d'Ivoire, football enthusiasts eagerly await the performance of the Black Stars under new coaching leadership.

According to the now-Sudan coach, a positive mindset and effective training regimens are crucial components for success in a tournament as competitive as AFCON.

“You see, sometimes when Ghanaians underrate the team that is when the team surprises Ghana. And it’s happened so many times,” he said on Sienu TV.

“Looking at the quality of the players, I think they can perform very well. I believe they can get to the final.”
