Ghana forward, Jordan Ayew, says the team has to be more unified to be able to win the Nations Cup in Egypt this June.

Jordan, who was a member of the team that agonizingly lost the finals to Ivory Coast on penalties in 2015 adds the team has gained some experience from the past Africa Cup of Nations.

The Crystal Palace forward will be making his fourth appearance at the competition this summer and he says that remains his main focus.

"Football is a funny sport but every time we have a chance, we have one more goal. The thing is we are getting old, we are gaining more experience and we all believe we can get something positive this time and I think if we keep on being united like we have the past months, I don't think we can't do a good tournament," he told

The Black Stars have been criticized in recent times following the perceived division in camp, with many claiming there is the Ayew faction and the Gyan squad in camp.

But Jordan has not seen anything like that claiming the team was very united en route to the finals in 2015.

"I think since I have been in the Black Stars, 2015- wasn't bad but I think this team is creating a sort of a very very solid team. It's positive for us because if you go to the AFCON you need your colleagues.

"You can't just play with nine, it's a team of 23 players.

"The only thing is the unity is key at a tournament. If we united as a team, I think we can do a great tournament," he added.
