Former Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan voices out on Ghana's chances to qualify after taking part in the 2021 AFCON draw which was held last Tuesday in the host nation Cameroon.

The ex- Sunderland and Udinese forward took part in the balloting in Yaounde alongside other African greats like Samuel Eto'o, Didier Drogba and Raber Majer, having conducted a good draw with some interesting and mouthwatering fixures coming up.

Ghana after the draw has been paired in Group C of the next Africa Cup of Nations, against Morocco, Gabon and Comoros with their first opening game on January 10 in the capital city.
In an interview with CAF, the Black Stars all time top scorer has labelled his country's group as a tricky one but has still advised them to offer all they could cruise from the group. He said;   
“I think it’s a tricky group. Morocco is up there, I think they conceded just one goal in the qualifiers which statistically is one of the strongest in the group” Gyan told CAFonline
“Ghana is also up there, but everyone who has qualified for the African Cup of Nations is there to win it.”
"Statistically, we’re up there but we don’t know what’s going to happen. We just have to stay focus and do what we can do to qualify from this group.”
Asamoah Gyan, 35, is very experience when it comes to playing the continental championship having scored in six out of the seven AFCON competitions he's played.
