Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan believes Uganda will be tough to crack in their Group D opener after describing the Cranes as one of the best teams on the continent.

Ghana have played against Uganda three times competitively: that draw in World Cup qualifying and twice in qualifying for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, where the Cranes got another draw and a famous victory.

For Gyan this makes their game with the Cranes very difficult but is sure of clinching all three points.

“One thing people must know is that Uganda is a great team and they have demonstrated that in recent times,” he said

“I know it will be a difficult game but i believe we are up to the task and as my coach said pressure brings the best out of you.

“This year we have almost the same players [as in 2015].

“Some lads [have] joined recently but 95% of the team are the same and we have been working under the coach for more than two years so we understand each other.”
