2019 Africa Cup of Nations: Ghana is united for one purpose - Andre Ayew

Published on: 19 June 2019

Black Stars skipper Andre Ayew says the team is united for success ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Ghana has failed to add to their four Afcon titles since winning it in 1982 and the 29-year-old is convinced the unity in camp will help the team break their 37-year jinx.

"It's been a while that camp has been good," he said. "I think we you want to get to your destination, you need to sacrifice," he added.

"Sacrifice is not just by words but most importantly by all of us being in the same boat to achieve what we want to achieve.

"In a squad of 23 players, you have different egos, different mentality and different ways of seeing things. Everyone has his ideas.

"But you need to make sure all those egos and ideas and everything that everyone has in their hearts at the end of the day goes in the same directions.

"Nobody changes his lifestyle or his character but we can use that to our advantage for all of us to go towards what we want."

Ghana have been placed in Group F alongside defending champions Cameroon, Benin and Guinea-Bissau
