Ghana winger Christian Atsu insists the Black Stars will qualify for next year's Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon despite defeat to Kenya.

The Black Stars have four more games to play and for Atsu there is nothing to be afraid off as they will make the tournament in June 2019.

"It is football, we lost the game although we had a lot of possession and created a lot of chances we could have won the game but this is football and we just have to focus on the next game which is the most important thing to do now," he told Joy FM

"There is nothing to be afraid of, for sure Ghana will qualify for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
