The Blood and Gold guardsman has stated he is working hard to make the final 23-man list and will help the Black Stars to win gold
The guardsman is poised to help the Kwesi Appiah-led team to end a 31-year-old trophy drought after he was named in Ghana's provisional 26-man squad.
Ghana last won the Nations Cup trophy in 1982 and the 23-year-old is confident he can be immense in the team’s quest to go for the ultimate.
“I must say the last two seasons have been good for me and I feel very confident now to play in a highly competitive tournament like the Nations Cup,” the former Asante Kotoko watchman told MTNFootball.
“I was not at the last Nations Cup but I wasn't disturbed because I know my time will come. I'm looking forward to the tournament.
“The coach has faith in us and we also have confidence in him as well so it will be a nice tournament for us,” Afful observed.
