Already, some Football Stars to watch out for, also representing their countries had gone on their Twitter handle in assuring the fans.

@ghanafaofficial ,Ghanaian Captain Asamoah Gyan  @ASAMOAH_GYAN3 assures that “ they are ready to face though group opponents and surprise everyone”. The Dutch Master: Former Barcelona star cruffs tips Ghana coach Avram Grant for title success. Black Stars management committee chairman, George Afriye  “ top notched head coach Avram Grant”.

In the spirit of competition, some football enthusiasts have tipped Ivory Coast (The Elephants) @FIFCI_tweet to lift the 2015 AFCON trophy even without their former Captain “ the talisman”, Didier Drogba but with presence of Yaya Toure @YayaToure the Field Marshal, Energetic, four times GLOCAF Award winner and present Football African King, with other world class players like Gervinho @GervinhOfficial , Wilfred Bony, Salomon Kalou .

Other predictions tilt towards these three: Algeria @LesVerts (Africa’s most enterprising and improved team) did Africa proud in 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil with young and dynamic players who pulled weight with World Champion Germany.

Ghana’s Black star @ghanafaofficial , four time victors , parading fresh legs including a new Coach Avram Grant ( one time Chelsea Coach) who believes his multitalented crop of players will surprise the continent.

And South Africa (BafanaBafana) @BafanaBafana , 1996 champions who stunned the defending champion from qualifying on their home soil. Coming to this competition with local coach and most of the boys from local league. These compact and self-motivated men are ready to surprise the continent.
While some countries will be parading new legs at Equatorial Guinea, others will be with old lags that they believe will do it for them considering their past experience in the tournament.
