Former Black Satellites coach, Jimmy Cobblah, has tipped the Black Stars to qualify to the next round of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations tournament as they lock horns with their Guinea Bissau counterparts in the last Group F match in Suez on Tuesday.

Coach Kwasi Appiah’s outfit has so far managed just two points out of the two matches played and are looking forward to winning the maximum points against Guinea-Bissau in other to progress to the Round of 16.

Speaking to Graphic Sports Online on Monday, the former Wa All Stars trainer was optimistic that the Black Stars will trample upon the Djurtus ( African wild dog) of Guinea-Bissau.

“Their (Black Stars) performance so far is impressive and what they need now is a little bit of luck to ensure victory.”

“Tactically, Coach Kwasi Appiah is on point and his substitutions and reactions to the matches played are intelligently refreshing,” he noted.

The Black Stars need a win at all cost at 4pm on Tuesday to keep their AFCON campaign alive.
