Appiah targets African Cup glory

Having guided Ghana to qualify for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah has set his sights on winning the competition.

The Black Stars qualified for next year's tournament in South Africa with a 1-0 win against Malawi in Lilongwe on Saturday, to record a 3-0 aggregate score over the two legs.

But with the Black Stars' last African success coming 30 years ago, every qualification is greeted with the demand for a fifth title.

"Being a coach my ambition was to try and qualify the nation to the Cup of Nations," said Appiah, a former Ghana captain.

"Now we will do our best to repeat what we were able to do in 1982."

The 2013 Africa Cup of Nations draw will be held in Durban on 24 October.
