Chris Hughton: “The target is to qualify for the 2023 AFCON”
Chris Hughton set sight on qualifying Ghana to AFCON 2023
Black Stars head coach Chris Hughton despite stating he can’t promise a trophy at his unveiling but has disclosed their substantive aim is to qualify for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.
The four time African champions will face Angola on Thursday, March 23, in match-day three of the 2023 AFCON qualifiers in Kumasi before they fly out to Luanda for the return encounter three days later.
Hughton and his men have been preparing for the game since last Monday but is now having a full house for their final training session which is currently happening at the match venue.
Ghana will need to get the better off Angola in the two fixtures to brighten their qualification chances as they are currently tied on the same points (4) each with Angola- whom they billed to face tomorrow.
The former Newcastle United manager states their ultimate target is to secure a spot to the next AFCON like the country has been doing for over a decade now and will look to perform incredibly well this time around.
Our aim is to qualify for AFCON and do well,” Hughton said at a pre-match press conference on Wednesday.
The game is scheduled for 16:00GMT at the Baba Yara Stadium
