CK Akunnor backs passionate Ghana to win 2013 Nations Cup

Posted On Thursday, 10th January 2013

The Black Stars will play Egypt in a friendly on Thursday

By Patrick Akoto

CK Akunnor insists it is not simply patriotism that fuels his belief that Ghana can win this year’s African Cup of Nations.

The Black Stars have been preparing in the United Arab Emirates for the past six days.

Head coach Kwesi Appiah submitted his final 23-man squad to the continent’s governing body, CAF on Wednesday after leaving out Asante Kotoko defender Rashid Sumaila.

The Black Stars have failed continuously to live up to expectations after unsuccessful attempts in winning the title in the past 30 solid years.

Prospect have been high for the Ghanaians once again and the former Hearts of Oak trainer has backed the team to end a long-wait for an African crown.

“I am not speaking as a Ghanaian but I believe we have the materials to win this cup,” Akunnor said

“Nothing is impossible. We have a strong team and I believe with luck on our side, the sky will be the limit for us.

“We have always been tagged as one of the favourites but we go there and fail to win the cup but I have a strong convinction that will change this year.

“We just have to pray and support the team.”

The Black Stars will battle Egypt in a friendly on Thursday before engaging Tunisia three days later ahead of the tournament in South Africa.
