Former Black Stars defender John Painstil insists Ghana must win AFCON 2019, following the disappointment of missing out on the World Cup in Russia, 2018.
The Black Stars of Ghana failed to qualify for the mundial after some poor run of form in the qualifiers, which saw Egypt picking the only slot in Group E.
According to the former Black Stars right back, the senior national team must win the Africa Cup of nations in Cameroon, 2019.
“Yes we stand a big chance of winning it because this World Cup qualifier has opened our eyes.
“We should have learnt from our mistakes and to turn things around we must win the 2019 Afcon.
“It is compulsory and a must win cup and this is what the players must understand,” he told Ghanasoccernet in an interview.
Ghana has not won the competition since 1982, leaving several football fans frustrated with the team.
The Black Stars however, have began the qualifiers for the Nations Cup in Cameroon on a good note after recording a 5-0 win over Ethiopia in Kumasi.
