Asante Kotoko midfielder Yahaya Mohammed has warned his local Black Stars teammates not to take their CHAN Group C opponents lightly.
Ghana drew Libya, Congo Brazzaville and Ethiopia on Wednesday for the tournament which kick-starts on 11 January.
Mohammed believes they must work their socks off to advance from the Group.
“It is a very tough group because now every nation want to be a football nation,” the versatile midfielder told Joy sports
“We are not going to have it easy because all these nations are very good so we have to strategize well before going into the tournament.
“I know the Ethiopians very well and judging from what they did at the last Nations Cup it won’t be easy but I believe we also have a great team to go and make history.”
Ghana will be based in Bloemfontein for all their Group matches.
