AFCON 2019: Ghana Must Pull Up Their Socks – Jay-Jay Okocha


Former Nigeria great Augustine ‘Jay-Jay’ Okocha has warned Ghana that they need to improve their game if they are to be considered among the top sides in Africa.

The Black Stars have had a poor start to the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Egypt and were held to their second draw against defending champions Cameroon on Saturday night.

Speaking on Supersport, the former Bolton star was however optimistic that the Black Stars will make it into the next round.

“A draw against the defending champions is a good result,” he said on SuperSports.

“I know they will qualify for the next round of the competition but they can’t continue playing like this,”

“They must uplift they game and play their heart out because this is a huge tournament and I don’t think they will like to exit from the group stage of the competition,” he added.

Ghana will now need to beat Guinea Bissau on Tuesday in the last group match to book a place in the next round, with a draw or a lose kicking them out of the tourney.

They will, however, be buoyed by the fact that they have made it to the semifinals for the last six tournaments, and might still fancy their chances.
