Black Stars is capable of winning Africa Cup of Nations – Richmond Boakye-Yiadom
Ghana striker, Richmond Boakye Yiadom believes the current Black Stars squad is capable of Clinching the Africa Cup of Nations in the near future.
The former Juventus and Atalanta striker has not been invited to the Black Stars since the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon earlier this year.
“I will take this platform to apologise to Ghanaians who have their heart in the team [for 2021 AFCON]. We always want to win but unfortunately, we couldn’t bring the points home. We couldn’t bring the cup,” Boakye-Yiadom said on TV3.
“They [fans] should not give up because I think the World Cup this year will be amazing. They should just put their heart out and support us. We’ll make history.”
“We can do it. Every player has to ask himself ‘do I want to be remembered like Abedi Pele?’ and if that mentality is there, you do extra on the pitch. If the playing body is giving all their best, the rest have to come from the technical team or men of God who can see spiritually. You can be in front of the cup, you can see it but you cannot take it. We need a special grace. Grace is from God,” he added.
Black Stars recently began their qualifying campaign for the 2023 tournament. They have one win and a draw after two games.
