The Black Stars of Ghana have already booked a place in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nation to be staged in Cameroon next year.
Ghana’s qualification was cemented at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa in March. The game ended 1-1 with Percy Tau’s 52nd minute goal canceling Mohammed Kudus’ 49th opener for the Black Stars.
Ghana iced their qualification after dispatching São Tomé 3-1 at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The AFCON trophy has eluded Ghana for 39 years and midfielder, Thomas Partey says the nation needs to adequately prepare to win the trophy.
“The expectation starts from our good preparations.
“We have to start preparing now, we have to go one game to another.
“First we have to prepare for the Africa Cup and make sure we have to win our friendly games before the Africa Cup starts.
“So there we will be able to build our confidence and through hard work for sure everything is possible so I think they [fans] have to relax, they have to be calm and keep supporting us.” Thomas Partey who plays for Arsenal said.
Ghana has won the Africa Cup of Nations on four occasions with the last being the 1982 edition in Libya.
