The Ghana team who begin their title bid against South Africa on Sunday say the facilities available to them at their Wad Madani base is not up to scratch.
"The facilities are not the best and I don't know why CAF would award a tournament like this here. It's not the best but we will manage. We can't use this as an excuse but I am disappointed with the facilities available to the team," Afriyie said.
Ghana are bidding to go one step better at the tournament having finished as runners up ti Congo DR in the inaugural tournament in Ivory Coast two years ago.
