"But when it comes to tournament you have to take it match after match but I'm very sure the girls can do something."

The Black Queens have been paired with Algeria, Mali and Cameroon in group A of the tournament which starts on November 17th.

Ghana has never won the competition before but were close on three occasions losing in the finals to Nigeria.

Meanwhile, Nigeria who are defending champions return to the competition as favourites and have been drawn in group B with Kenya, Zambia and South Africa.
