Ghana have flattered to deceive at recent Africa Cup of Nations Finals. Largely believed to have experienced something of a golden generation, the Black Stars have been regular semi-finalists in the last decade with just one final appearance in 2010, when they fell to Egypt. The Ghanaians have also qualified for the last three FIFA World Cup tournaments where they infamously lost to Uruguay in the 2010 quarter-finals in South Africa.
In Equatorial Guinea the West Africans will be led by Avram Grant, who will aim to lead the side to their fifth AFCON title after triumphs in 1963, 1965, 1978 and 1982. Grant will look to familiar and inspirational figures like strikers Asamoah Gyan and midfielders Andre Ayew and Christian Atsu. Ghana qualified for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations by winning Group E ahead of Guinea, Uganda and Togo.
Grant’s charges have been drawn in what many are calling the Group of Death, Group C alongside the continent’s number-one ranked side Algeria, South Africa and Senegal.
