Ghana Football Association general secretary, Prosper Harrison Addo, is optimistic about the Black Stars’ chances of ending their long trophy drought at next year’s Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Ivory Coast.
Ghana would have qualified if they had defeated Madagascar in Antananarivo last Sunday, but a lacklustre performance ended in a draw, leaving them just a point away from qualification.
With just a win or draw against Central African Republic had to secure qualification, Addo is already searching ahead to the competition.
Addo believes the four-time African champions have the potential to reclaim the title because of beneficial conditions in Ivory Coast, as the two neighbouring countries share a border.
He highlighted that everything, including the weather, fits the Black Stars, which gives them an advantage.
“The weather and everything [in Ivory Coast] suits us, so we’re hoping to qualify and go and win the cup,” Addo expressed at some point of an interview with Asempa FM.
The Black Stars’ last triumph withinside the Africa Cup of Nations dates back to 1982, and they have since skilled three final defeats, two of which were at the hands of Ivory Coast.
