Newcastle United winger Christian Atsu has refused to tag Ghana as one of the favourites to win the 2019 Africa Cup Nations.
Having been semi-finalists with two finals in the last six editions of Africa’s flagship tournament, the Black Stars are among the teams tipped to lift the coveted trophy next year in Cameroon.
But the 26-year-old winger thinks otherwise.
“It’s difficult because you can see Nigeria, Senegal, Morocco are doing very good, you have these teams and everything depends on the players. Everyone is working hard so I cannot say we are one of the favourites, ” he told planetsport.tv
However, Atsu believes the dream of winning the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations could be achievable with hard work, teamwork and trust.
“…but I believe that if we work hard for each other and trust each other then we will achieve our dreams.”
