Ex-Black Stars coach Dossena backs team for AFCON final

Posted On Sunday, 27th January 2013

Black Stars celebrating at the Africa Cup of Nations

Former Ghana coach Guissepe Dossena is tipping the Black Stars, who are yet to click into gear-to reach the final of the 2013 Africa Cup Nations.

The Italian led the Black Stars to a quarter-final berth at the 2000 tournament which was co-hosted by Ghana and Nigeria.

Dossena, a member of Italy’s 1982 FIFA World Cup winning squad, believes the Black Stars will rediscover their playing style as the tournament progresses.

“Ghana has become a power house and on paper can go all the way, but I still think their level and calibre is not as high as compared to the team we saw at the World Cup 2010,” Dossena said.

“I have seen them in their first Afcon match and it was a below average performance in my opinion but once they wake up they will be unstoppable – they have it in themselves.”

Ghana need just draw against Niger in their final Group B match on Monday to secure a quarter-final berth.

    their play looks nervous during the first two games..when the coach gets confident, the players will follow and settle down and play as they did at the world cup….
