Ghana will clinch the trophy – Oti Akenten



Technical Director of the Ghana Football Association, Francis Oti Akenten believes the Black Stars stand a chance of winning the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.

The Black Stars suffered their first defeat in the tournament after a free-kick was converted by star man Mohammed Salah on the 10th minute.

The Black Stars have qualified for the quarter finals of the competition and will play DR Congo in Oyem.

Ghana are on a mission to end a thirty five year trophy drought at the Nations Cup and although many Ghanaians are unimpressed with what they describe as the uninspiring performances of the team in their two wins.

However, Coach Oti Akenten says the Black Stars are going about their business in a very calculated manner which if continued will win them the AFCON trophy this year.

“The little discussion that I have had with the coach Avram Grant, I think the team is ready and we are waiting to see how it goes.

“From what we saw [in our game against Mali if that is anything to go by, we [Ghana] stand a good chance in ultimately winning the cup.

“We know it is not going to be easy. We just started [the tournament] and can’t use one match to access countries or teams, so let’s wait for a little while but I think we are very much ready,” he added.
