Qatar Legacy Ambassador is in Ghana in a build-up to 2022 Fifa World Cup
“Ghana has proven that it is possible for an African country to win the World Cup”
The Cameroonian football administrator and former player who is the current president of the Cameroonian Football Federation also added that “Ghana has the same chances of winning the world cup like any other Africa Team”
Football is all about details and we had enough time to learn.
“In 2010, Ghana was very close to having a shot at winning the World Cup, so it only means we are getting close to it. It’s possible for an African country to win the World Cup in Qatar. It’s just 7 games.”
According to him, he is glad Asamoah Gyan wants to take on the challenge of playing again at the world cup.
“This is the Africa we want to see, that African countries allow the sons of their land to take control of affairs as coaches of national teams.
“What unites us as citizens is our national teams where when we are playing everybody is rooting behind the team.”
