Legendary Nigerian playmaker, Austin Jay-Jay Okocha has posited that Ghana can win this year’s African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament.
According to him, although the team is now an underdog when you compare it to the ‘big boys’, the team can actually pull a surprise.
He made this known in a recent submission he made on SuperSports and in his submission, he said;
“We have a tall list of countries capable of winning the tournament. Burkina Faso is in there and we know how they played in 2013 causing several upsets.
Cameroon are playing at home and they have the support of the entire country and so you expect them to go all out in every game but this is football.
But again, remember Ghana is in there even though they are coming in underdogs but they are some of the favorites to win the tournament.
We know their experience in such tournaments even though things have not been smooth for them but they have what it takes to win. The North African countries are also capable of winning the title. Algeria won it the last edition.”
