Former Black Stars midfielder, George Alhassan, has called out for Ghanaian players to end the nation’s long wait to win the Africa Cup of Nations trophy.

The 63-year-old, who won the AFCON twice with Ghana in 1978 and 1982, says the West African nation has been ‘crying.’

"We are all crying to win AFCON again because it been long since we won the trophy. Years without a trophy is worrying..

“Cameroon weren’t having any trophies when we won the 4th trophy but currently they have won the trophies more than us," he told Happy FM.

"We didn’t have the best preparation when we won that trophy in Libya. What helped us was that we the players were ready to Sacrifice ourselves for the country and we actually love to play football so we did all we could and won the trophy," concluded the man nicknamed Jair after another retired footballer Jairzinho of Ghana.
