President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kurt Okraku, says the Black Stars are on course to win their first silverware in a long time.
Ghana has not enjoyed success at the senior level since the Africa Cup of Nations triumph in 1982 under the late C.K Gyamfi. The team has come close to winning the trophy once again on several occasions but have fallen short in the final with the most recent being the 2015 edition.
In his tenure as president of the country’s football governing body, Ghana failed to advance from the group stage of the only AFCON they have competed for while also exiting in the group stage of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
However, Kurt is certain the team will be ending the drought soon.
“The team [Black Stars] has not achieved by way of results on the pitch but by way of processes taking us to the promise land, I think we are on track,” he said in an interview with SuperSport’s Juliet Bawuah.
“Let’s go back to where we took the team. Let’s look at the intangible assets of the squad, let’s look at the timing to prepare and get us a winning team.”
The Black Stars are currently on course to secure qualification to the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations to be staged in Ivory Coast in January 2024.
