Ghana football coach, Isaac 'Opeele' Boateng has revealed that the inclusion of experienced and patriotic players in the Afcon squad will brighten the chances of the Black Stars in clinching a 5th title in Egypt.

The veteran coach pointed out that the coach of the Black Stars, Kwesi Appiah, should include players who can mentor the younger ones, describing it as the “X factor” for Afcon glory.

His comments come on the back of the inclusion of Cameroon veteran goalkeeper Carlos Kamini and Ajax shot-stopper Andre Onana in the Cameroon setup.

He advised Ghanaians to see the positive side of things and put an end to their unnecessary criticisms.

He added that luck will equally play a factor in the success or failure of the Stars, adding that he remains optimistic that Ghana will go far in the tournament.

He was speaking on Asempa FM on Tuesday, 16 April 2019.

The Black Stars have been drawn in group F with defending champions Cameroon as well as Benin and Guinea Bissau in the expanded 24 teams.

The Afcon kicks off on 21 June to 19 July 2019 across 6 cities in Egypt.
