Former Ivory Coast captain Yaya Toure has predicted that Cameroon will progress into the next round of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations ahead of Ghana from Group F.
The Black Stars have drawn against Cameroon, Benin and Guinea Bissau in Group F of the tournament in Egypt this June.
Toure made the prediction as a guest at the draw which was held in Sphinx, Egypt, claiming that Cameroon who are defending champions of the competition have what it takes to advance from the tricky group ahead of the West Africa powerhouse.
The four-time Africa champions qualified for the continent’s football showpiece after topping Group F with 9 points ahead of the Harambee Stars of Kenya.
Kwesi Appiah’s side are seeking to end their 37-year wait for continental success, having won their last title in 1982.
Ghana have come close to ending their drought at the last six tournaments, having reached the semi-finals, and even going as far as the final in 2010 and 2015.
