2021 AFCON: Ex-Ghana international Ibrahim Sunday does not rate Ghana among favourites for tournament

Ex-Ghana international Ibrahim Sunday says Black Stars are not favourites, however, if they work hard they can win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

The four-time African champions have not won the coveted trophy since beating Libya to win the 1982 tournament.

Ghana have been drawn alongside Morocco, Gabon, and Comoros in Group C and will open their campaign with a game against the Atlas Lions of Morocco on January 10 before playing the Panthers of Gabon and the Coelacanths of Comoros on January 14 and 18 respectively.

“[It is] every country who qualified for the tournament’s dream to win the trophy [but] the trophy will be won by only one country,” Sunday told Edubeaseman FM.

“It’s true Ghana have not won the trophy for 40 years but maybe this time, it could be ours. If you look at the teams that are going for the tournament, if we shall be truthful, the Black Stars are not favourites to win the cup.

“But favourites are not guaranteed to win tournaments. A well-prepared side, psychologically, mentally, physically and everything normally has the chance to win the trophy.

“Has Ghana prepared the players in that manner? Although the Black Stars are not favourites, if they work hard with good training, they can win the tournament.”
