Deputy Chairman of Parliamentary Select on Sports and Gomoa East MP, hon. Kojo Asemanyi has reiterated that there is no way Ghana’s Black Stars will underrate Cameroon, Benin and Guinea Bissau in their Group F pairings.
According to the young legislature and football enthusiast he believes Ghana always pulls surprises when they are written off as trophy contenders.
“The Black Stars are capable of qualifying from the group come what may. Most connoisseurs have tipped Ghana and Cameroon to qualify from the group but that doesn’t mean our team will not go all out against Benin and Guinea- Bissau.
“Don’t be surprised if Ghana goes ahead to win this trophy despite the number being increased from 16 to 24 teams he told Starrfm.com.gh.
