Asamoah Gyan has named his five favourite nations to win the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) in Cameroon.
The former Ghana captain has included the Black Stars in his favourite teams to win the tournament despite their uncertainty of making it into the last 16.
Algeria, Cameroon, Nigeria, and Morocco are the other favourites the 36-year-old, who’s missing the Afcon for the first time since 2008 mentioned.
A lot of people are not convinced Ghana is performing well to be considered a tournament favourite.
The Black Star lost 1-0 to Morocco in the opening game and conceded late to draw 1-1 against Gabon on Friday.
Milovan Rajevac’s team must beat Comoros today, Tuesday to make it out of the group stage to stand any chance of ending Ghana’s 40-year wait for a fifth Afcon title.
“It’s a very tricky one but for me, I think Algeria, Ghana, Cameroon, and Nigeria of course,” Gyan said when asked for his tournament favourites in an interview with Caf.
“Don’t forget Morocco because they’re also in good form. Going to the tournament we got a lot of favourites there, so let’s see what happens.”
