    I hope we will have all the players going to the World Cup committed to the Afcon next year.

    I think it will be somewhat of a new crop. I do not think Essien, Muntari, Gyan, Inkoom, Afful, KPB will be a part of the crew anymore. The new leadership will be Boye, Dede, Kasa, Agyemang-Badu, Wakasso, Atsu and Waris.

    I see same stone that hit NIGERIA and stopped us from qualifying for AFCON 2012 is about to hit GHANA. GHANA qualifying for next year’s AFCON will take GOD’s grace. I have interacted with a couple of GHANAIANS but they keep saying AFCON is not the real deal that their target is the world cup. Tweeeeeeeeaaaaaaa.. I see GHANA’S 35 years AFCON drought being extended to 37yrs…. Mark my word.

    Oh so it could be Ghana, Egypt, Senegal… or Ghana, Algeria/South Africa, Senegal…….. or Cote d’Ivoire/Nigeria/Zambia against Egypt/Algeria/South Africa and Senegal…mouth-watering potential encounters

    I pray we end the trophy drought in Morocco.
