AFCON 2021: Ghana vs Gabon preview

Story by GBC Special Correspondent Michael Okuley, Yaounde

The group C of the ongoing Africa cup of nations (AFCON) in Cameroon enters matchday with some interesting pairings.

The wounded Black Stars are poised to grab all 3pts against Gabon who only need a point to at least secure their place in the knockout stage.

Having won their opening game against Comoros to sit comfortably at the summit of the table, the Panthers are determined to add the Black Stars to their list of recent victims.

With the target of ending the 4 decades trophy drought, the 4-time Africa champions would be relying on their dominance of the Central Africa country to make it count.

Ghana have won two games and lost just one out of their last three encounters with Gabon.

Coach Milovan Rajevac is highly optimistic about neutralizing the threat of
Patrice Neveu led team.

“We really work a lot in the past few days we know exactly what it takes. We played well in the previous game and we need to step up a little bit to make our performance even better. Tactically we are ready and hopefully everything goes well.”

Ghana are languishing at the bottom of Group C table with no point and must win to bring their title ambition back on track.
