Former Vice President of the Ghana Football Association George Afriyie has advised Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah to select a squad that is capable of winning the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Appiah's outfit, who have been to the semi-final of the last six tournaments, are seeking to win the trophy for the first time since 1982.

The former Black Stars management committee chairman who was present at the draw spoke on the chances of the team and what the coach must do to win the title.

"Bring up a squad that is realistic and capable of winning the AFCON. He must do a lot of monitoring to select these players"

George who is aspiring for the Ghana Football Association Presidency led the Black Stars to place second in the 2015 AFCON as Black Stars management committee chairman.

Ghana lost to Ivory Coast on penalties in that tournament.
