We will keep trying until win the AFCON – Sannie Darra



Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Football Association, Ibrahim Sannie Darra has disclosed the FA will keep on trying until they win the Africa Cup of Nations trophy.

The Football Association charged Avram Grant to end the country’s 35 years trophy drought ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon but the team failed to win the trophy.

Cameroon blocked the country’s chances to win the trophy at the semifinals stage of the competition losing by 2:0.
The team lost to Burkina Faso in the third and fourth place by a lone goal to nothing finishing the tournament at the fourth position.

Many football fans has called on the President of the Football Association to quits his position after shambolic display in the 2014 FIFA world Cup with the many reasons indicating that he has nothing to offer in football.

In the last twelve years, the Black Stars have played the finals of the Africa Cup of Nations twice. The team in Angola 2010 played Egypt in the finals of the tournament but was beaten by a lone goal and in Equatorial Guinea; the Black Stars were again beaten by Ivory Coast on penalties.

But the former BBC worker says it will be unfair to crusade for the exit of the president of the FA and the management of the Black Stars.

“After the match against Cameroon, the coach [Avram Grant] came to me and said he wanted to win the Champions League with Chelsea but he couldn’t win it but I wanted to win this trophy badly and his statement made me very sad.” He told Peace FM.

“We went to the tournament with many people doubting we can even by pass the quarter finals stage but we were able to reach the semifinals of the competition.

“In football, you need luck to win trophy. It will be unfair to say the Nyantakyi should quit his position as the president of the FA because we have been able play at the highest level but we will keep on trying till win the AFCON trophy.” He added.
