Ghana's No. 1

Prince Tagoe gets Stevanovic backing to shine at Nations Cup

Published on: 15 December 2011

Under-performing striker Prince Tagoe will turn the corner at next month's Africa Cup of Nations, insists Ghana coach Goran Stevanovic.

The Bursaspor striker has been vehemently criticized for his lack of goals on international duty.

Tagoe reputation suffered a blow after he failed to impress at the 2010 Fifa World Cup finals in South Africa.

But he was named in the provisional 25-man squad for next year’s finals to co-host by Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.

Stevanovic has no doubts about the form of the 24-year-old.

"When Asamoah Gyan was red-carded it was Prince Tagoe who did the job and that is why I chose to select him for African Cup," the Serbian trainer said.
