Asamoah, Ghana’s deputy captain, remains assured that his national team has what it takes to make history at the AFCON.

Although only a vice-captain, Ghana’s Kwadwo Asamoah is convinced his team has the commitment to win this year’s AFCON title.

Should that be the case, Ghana will harvest its fifth Africa Cup of Nations title.

Not just that, but the national Ghana team are regular in the competition ever since 2008. However, since then, they have only made it to the final-four stage. As for their last AFCON title, it was way, way back in 1982, so Ghana’s determination to reach the throne again is booming.

“We are ready because it’s something that we are lacking for a very long time and we want to achieve that,” noted Asamoah. Moreover, as per FourFourTwo, the Inter Milan player expressed his encouragement in a video posted on the Ghana Football Association website.

“We want to make history for ourselves, for our nation. It’s very important for us. We’ve been expecting this moment for a very long time,” Asamoah discussed.

“It’s not going to be easy, as always. But, since we have that belief we are going to start this tournament with a great attitude to bring a positive result,” he remarked.

“I’ve been in the team for a very long time and I know how important this tournament is for our nation.”

“For me, it doesn’t matter being a deputy (captain) or a normal player in the team. The most important thing for us is to do our best and put our maximum effort into every game.”

“And I think, with that, we are going to succeed.”

Much like Asamoah, we too would like to see Ghana go headfirst for that title. And hopefully, they do have what it takes to become champions.
