AFCON 2021: Black Stars should count themselves as favourites – Arhinful

Former Ghana international Augustine Arhinful believes Black Stars are one of the favourites to win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

The team’s performances in recent years haven’t been impressive and that saw them not seeded for the draw held on Tuesday.

The four-time African champions landed in Group C and will play highly-rated Morocco, Gabon and debutants Comoros.

“We have a good team and I think the group is okay”, he told Happy FM on Ghana’s draw.

“The teams from the West Africa regions are always favourite so let’s count ourselves that we are favourites to win the trophy”

“Now there are no minnows in African football. How we prepare and select our players is the most important thing now”.

“We must prepare very well for the tournament”.

“The coach must now do a lot of scouting, focus on his formation and set pieces. Let’s ask when was the last time we scored from a set piece. We must work on all these things before the tournament,” he added.

Black Stars are hoping to win their first Afcon trophy since 1982 in Cameroon next year
