Rwanda coach Johnny McKinstry says he would have loved to avoid Ghana in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The Irishman will lead the Amavubee against the Black Stars, Mozambique and Mauritius when the series begin this June.

McKinstry, who coached the Right to Dream Academy in Ghana in 2010, has admitted that the Black Stars are favourites claim top spot in Group H.

“It is obviously a tough group. No one wants to be in the same group with Ghana because they have been a very strong side and are a relatively young team,” he told

“The games against Mozambique and Mauritius will be evenly contested and we can win. We have to fight for the second place in this group but so will both Mozambique and Mauritius. First place will be difficult but second place is a very realistic ambition for us.”
