Ghana need luck to win AFCON – Essien

Former Ghana international Michael Essien insists the Black Stars need “a bit of luck” in order to win their fifth AFCON.

The Black Stars have come close in the past nine years losing the 2010 final by a lone goal to Egypt and the 2015 final to Cote D’Ivoire after a marathon of penalty shoot out.

Essien believes the country need players who are eager for success together with efficient management and above all luck to win the AFCON in Egypt.

“We need good hungry players, good management and a bit of luck to win titles in football and I have no doubt the team will be doing everything to win it,” the former Chelsea star told goal.com.

“It won’t be easy because there are so many strong teams in Africa who will be looking to win it, so it’s going to be a big battle.

“I am sure the guys will be ready and we will find out in due course.”

Essien who plays for Sabali FC in Azerbaijan made 58 appearances for Ghana scoring nine goals.
