Ex-president Rawlings wants Ghana to win 2012 Nations Cup

Published on: 25 March 2011

Former Ghana president Jerry John Rawlings has tasked the Black Stars to win the next edition of the Africa Nations Cup.

Rawlings believes the team has the credentials of winning the African championship after missing out of a semi-final place at the 2010 Fifa World Cup finals.

"This is the best team ever to be assembled in Ghana. Let's start our march to the title by beating Congo in Brazzaville on Sunday," Rawlings said.

The famous ex-president visited the team during their training session at the Kasarani Stadium in Nairobi on Wednesday.

    why ar the other players doing that to John. some ar laughin while others ar lukin down in shame. They know he doesnt speak well. I suggest the team make Debe the spoke's person instead of forcin the captain to speak at all times uncomfortably. Anway, all de best blk stars. The coach shd start, Inkoom, Debe,Annan,Addy, Opoku Agyeman, K. Asamoah, Nathaniel Asamoah, Olele, Jonathan, Vorsa, Gyan

    @Citizen Kusi,Opoku and Nathaniel who??You're a big time JOKER by clamoring for these average players to be included in the starting 11 ahead of active and inform players playing at the highest level of club football in Europe.By the way Opoku Agyemang is not even playing the game so save your breath.
