Ghana midfielder Asiedu Atobrah believes they have what it takes to beat Libya in Saturday’s CHAN final in Cape Town.

The two countries will clash for the second time in the competition after they drew 1-1 in their second group C game.

Ghana needed four expertly taken penalties to defeat West African and perennial rivals Nigeria while Libya also accounted for surprise package Zimbabwe through the lottery of the spot-kick.

The New Edubiase ace, who started the game against the Super Eagles for the first time in the tournament, is confident about the team’s chances of winning the title.

“Libya is going to be tough but we’ll beat them on Saturday,” Atobrah said

“We have come too far to lose the title. We cannot afford to disappoint Ghanaians.

“There is no way we’ll let this opportunity slip through our hands. We’re going to fight and ensure we go back home with the title.”

Ghana have made it to the CHAN finals for the second time in three editions.

    I have been impressed with the output of this chap, I wonder how the hell he was kept on the bench all this while and also how mediocre Mpong was played ahead of him. He’s a good prospect but sometimes over-elaborates a little bit, nevertheless a very good player by all standard.
