My desire is to win the AFCON – Kurt Okraku

GFA President Kurt Okraku

Ghana Football Association (GFA) president, Kurt Okraku says it is his desire to end the country’s long Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) trophy drought.

Mr Okraku, 49, was 11 years the last time Ghana won the tournament in 1982 in Libya.

Since winning the tournament for the fourth time, 38 years ago, the Black Stars have made the finals three times.

They lost two finals on penalties to Ivory Coast and were beaten 1-0 by Egypt in 2010.

“My desire and the desire of every member of my administration and Ghanaians is to win the Africa Cup of Nations,” he told Kumasi based Nhyira FM.

“As a nation, we’ll do whatever possible, to win the trophy again,” he added.

The next Africa Cup of Nations will take place in Cameroon in 2022.
