Yaounde, Cameroon,- Head Coach of the Black Stars, Milovan Rajevac says the team lacks a striker of Asamoah Gyan’s caliber at the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon.

The Black Stars have gone two matches without a win and eyeing a crucial win against Comoros in the last Group C match to stand a chance of progress to the next stage.

At a press conference held ahead of the game, the coach of the side said, Ghana’s current team cannot be compared to the squad that had quality to progress to the finals of the 2010 AFCON in Angola.

He was reacting to a question posed by a foreign journalist, who asked the coach to compare the 2010 Black Stars squad and the current squad during the press conference.

“We don’t have the same team like 2010. Not enough time for the preparations. We don’t have a player like Asamoah Gyan in the team now,” he said.

The Sebian tactician pointed out that the team did not have enough preparations towards the biennial competition, which had affected the team.

“I followed the team well. Sadly, we need to do something at a short notice. I’m trying to implement these things and we are on the right path. We lost the first game in 2010 AFCON and we improved later to play in the finals.

“Definitely we would improve and make progress,” he added.

Ghana would take on Comoros on Tuesday, in the final Group match at the Roumde Adjia in Garoua.
