2021 Afcon: Abdul Fatawu Issahaku confident of Black Stars chances of winning trophy

Ghana youngster, Abdul Fatawu Issahaku, has expressed his confidence in Black Stars chances of winning the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations [Afcon].

The Black Stars having won the last continental trophy in 1982 will be hoping to win their fifth trophy next month in Cameroon.

The West African country have come close of winning the trophy in 1992, 2010 and 2015.

With less than a month for the start of the competition, the Dreams FC loanee says the players are aware of the task expressing confidence that they have the quality to challenge for the title.

“Ghana has always got quality players but I trust in the current team. Everyone in the team is ready to win the African Cup so I think everyone will give out his all to take the cup,” 17-year-old Issahaku, who led Ghana to win gold at the U20 Afcon in March, and who has scored six goals in six appearances for Dreams in the Ghana Premier League so far this season, said, as reported by Sportsworldghana.

“Actually, the target is to win the cup because at the U20 level that was the target and we achieved it.

“But I think with the senior side, they [Black Stars] have everything that can help Ghana to win the trophy and I have the confidence that we can win the trophy,” he added.

The Black Stars have been drawn against Morocco, Gabon and the Comoro Islands in the group stage.

Ghana will officially open camp next week Wednesday in Doha. The team will play three friendlies before flying to Yaounde.

The Black Stars exited at the Round of 16 in the last edition hosted in Egypt in 2019.
