The Black Queen are set to play at the 11th edition of the continental championship on home soil after finishing third in the last gathering in Cameroon.
hree-time losing finalists, the West Africans are hoping to exorcise their devils this time around.
“I am very confident they can win it," Basigi told Ghanasportsonline.
"I know most of the ladies. I’ve worked with them before. The team I know can deliver.
“But I believe as hosts, we have a little edge over them because we will get the home support, which should motivate the players.
“I am very optimistic they can make history this time around.
“Two years ago, we were close, only to lose to the hosts Cameroon in the semifinals.”
The championship is set to run between November 17 and December 1.
Basigi, who led Ghana at the 2016 tournament, quit the team in January this year for a new challenge in Denmark.
