Etim Esin backs Ghana to triumph over Cameroon in AFCON semis clash

Ex-Nigeria international Etim Esin has tipped Ghana to account for Cameroon in Thursday's 2017 Africa Cup of Nations final.

"It is a very difficult to pick between Ghana and Cameroon because they are two great African football nations," Esin tells

"But I'm very happy with what Abedi Pele's sons (Andre and Jordan) are doing. Abedi captained Ghana, his son (Andre) is now the captain, which is great.

"So, if I am forced to make a pick, I think I will go for Ghana because they are really doing well."

Ghana lost 1-0 Cameroon on home soil in the semi-final of the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations.
