AFCON AFCON 2023: Ghana can still qualify for Round of 16 – Kudus

Ghana midfielder Mohammed Kudus is confident they can still make it to the Round of 16 of the Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.

The Black Stars kicked of their campaign with a 2-1 defeat against Cape Verde before forcing a 2-2 draw against Egypt. Kudus, who started against the Pharaohs and scored the opener, remains confident they will still qualify.

“It is very possible, until we finish the last game in the group, it’s the same focus. You could see the fighting spirit and the energy from the guys,” said Kudus, adding: “We have to do more than that in the last game because we have to get the three points at all cost and we will see what happens after.”

On whether Ghana can win he title, the West Ham United midfielder said: “The ultimate goal for all of us is to lift the trophy but the sub goal is to get out of the group so the focus is on one game at a time.

“Like I said the ultimate goal is to win the trophy that is the aim we came here with but we can’t look far ahead of us so we just need tom take it one game at time.”
