Ghana favourites to qualify for Afcon 2015 – Guinea coach admits

The head coach of Guinea Michel Dussuyer has admitted that Ghana are favourites to qualify from Group E for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco.

The Black Stars are drawn in Group E alongside Togo and Guinea with a team yet to be decided in the qualifiers.

“If you make a picture of this group, we say that Ghana is the logical favourite, while Togo and Guinea will fight to snatch second place,” Dussuyer told RFI.

“We find ourselves in a difficult group. We know that Ghana is a great nation of African football and regularly qualifies for African Cup and World Cups. This is a very strong team.”

He added: “The group also consists of Togo, who have very good individual players like Emmanuel Adebayor, Alaixys Romao, Serge Gakpé and Kossi Agassa. Togo were good during Afcon 2013.”
