United Kingdom-based Ghanaian football coach Kofi Koranteng is optimistic striker Caleb Ekuban will shine at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Ekuban shot into fame after scoring on his debut for Kwasi Appiah’s Black Stars.

And, the Ghanaian tactician who is emerging on the scenes in the coaching world is confident the striker will make history at the Afcon.
