‘Ghana has the talents to win the World Cup,’ says Caf President Motsepe

The President of the Confederation of African Football Patrice Motsepe believes Ghana has enough talent to win the World Cup in the future.

The South African businessman made this assertion while speaking at a breakfast meeting on his 2-day working visit to Ghana.

Motsepe said in Accra Thursday: “Ghana has produced some of the best footballers in the world”, singling out Champions League winners Abedi Pele (with Olympique Marseille) and Michael Essien (with Chelsea) as two of the most notable examples.

He added that: “This country has the talent and resources to produce a national team that can win the Afcon, but also win a World Cup.”

The four-time African champions’ best finish at the World Cup was their quarterfinals reached at the 2010 edition in South Africa.

The West African giants were just a kick away from making history by becoming the first African team to reach the semifinals but lost on penalties to Uruguay.

Ghana also has two other appearances to its credit; a round of 16 exit in 2006 at their first World Cup finals appearance and the group stage exit at the 2014 edition, failing to qualify in 2018.

The Black Stars also last won the Afcon in 1982. It will be 40 years by the 2021 edition in January 2022 since that feat.
