Ghana Sports minister Elvis Afriyie Ankrah has tipped the home-based Stars to beat Â â€˜confusedâ€™ Libya to lift the CHAN title on Saturday.
The two sides will go at each other in Saturdayâ€™s final at Cape Town after they both negotiated their semi-final games.
Ghana and Libya needed penalty shootout to advance to the finals at the expense of Nigeria and Zimbabwe respectively.
Libyan football was brought to a halt for two years due to political tension that engulfed the North African country.
But they are just a game away from lifting the trophy which could help to heal wounds in the post Gadhafi era.
However Ghanaâ€™s sports minister Elvis Afriyie Ankrah says their opponent are too 'confused' to stand mighty Ghana.
â€œLibya? Thatâ€™s Gadhafiâ€™s children. He is dead and so they are confused. They should just give the cup to us,â€ Â he joked after Ghanaâ€™s semi-final win over Nigeria.
â€œThey cannot stand in our way for the title. We are taken the cup home to our people.â€
Football in Libya only started in September last year after being brought to a halt in February 2011 by the civil conflict which ousted the dictator Moammar Gadhafi.
