One month! How long Ghana has to celebrate next Afcon title – Baba Rahman

Black Stars defender Baba Abdul Rahman says Ghana should celebrate their fifth Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) title in grand style.

The senior national team has qualified for the next edition of the continental showpiece, their ninth consecutive qualification.

The Afcon trophy has eluded Ghana since 1982 when the Stars beat Libya 7-6 on penalty shootouts after drawing 1-1 in regular time.

For Baba, who is on-loan at PAOK Thessaloniki from Chelsea, victory for Ghana in Cameroon next year should be celebrated for one month.

“So many young players motivated coupled with experienced old players makes a perfect blend,” he told FMIG.

“When there is this mixture, it always work well for Ghana.  I am hoping that whoever gets the chance to make it will bring the Afcon to us and we can celebrate for one month.

“If we win it, we should celebrate it for one month.”

How close have the Black Stars got since Baba began playing as left-back?

In 2015, the 26-year-old played in the final against Cote d’Ivoire when Ghana lost on penalties to their West African neighbours.
