The President of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt Okraku, is defiant the Black Stars are capable of winning the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, which starts in 10 days.

It is now 42-years since Ghana last won the AFCON in 1982, and the team’s recent performance does not inspire hope among Ghanaian’s that they can win that elusive fifth title.

However, Kurt Okraku, believes the Black Stars can write a beautiful story in neighbouring Ivory Coast.

“Ivory Coast is possible. We have seen top performing teams fail at big tournaments,” Kurt said at a presser on Monday during the unveiling of Ghana’s final squad.

“We have seen less experienced, unfancied sides win big tournaments, so it is possible.

“Again, whether in good times or in bad times, all of us here in our dear country called Ghana have only one senior men’s national team, it is the Black Stars and we are the Black Stars and we are Ghana.”

Ghana is set to open their group stage campaign against Cape Verde on Sunday, January 14, 2024.

The Black Stars will then play against record champions Egypt in their second group match against Egypt in four days before wrapping up the group face against Mozambique on January 22.

The Black Stars opened camp on Tuesday at the Dr Kwame Kyei Sports Complex with 24 players, with Kudus, Richard Ofori, and Inaki Williams the players yet to report to camp.
