Appiah warns against complacency

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah says it would be suicidal to underrate their opponents in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The Black Stars boss believes the draw handed his side is tough. Ghana drew Togo, Guinea, and a yet-to-be determined opponent in Group E for the eliminators to the finals which will be hosted by Morocco.

Ghana have been frustrated in the Afcon in the last three editions, having failed to win despite making every semi final.

“If you look at African football now, West African countries are doing well and so it is difficult to rule anybody out,” Appiah told

“There are no longer small countries and so all we need to do is to prepare well for the challenge.”

The top two countries in each group, plus the best third-placed finisher qualify for the finals along with the hosts Morocco.

The group matches will be played 5-6 September and 10 September; 10-11 October and 15 October; 14-15 November and 19 November. – Super Sport
