Kwesi Appiah helped Ghana to reach the final of the 2015 Horn of Africa in Equatorial Guinea.

Kwesi Appiah says that he has "unfinished business" with Ghana and that he is "very optimistic" that he will be in the squad for the African Nations Cup in June.

Ghana remembered the AFC Wimbledon, one of the key players for the Black Stars when they reached the final in the 2015 competition, for the first time in four years for the qualifier against Kenya.

"I was honored to go back to Afcon," said Appiah with BBC World Service Sportsworld program.

I had a good conversation with the manager, we have a good relationship, we are very open and honest about things and we hope that this call will come and we can come together again and create some magic

“I gave everything, every time I was in that shirt, the coach knows, the players have their value.

"I am hopeful that I will get that call because I have an incomplete business and we have an unfinished business as a nation. We hope that the experience from the previous competition will be taken into account.

"It was nice to join the squad recently and show what I can do before the final choice for Egypt.

"I had a good conversation with the manager, we have a good relationship, we are very open and honest about things and we hope that this call will come and we can come together again and create some magic." "

Appiah, 28, believes that Ghana's 2019 squad – being trained by its name Kwesi Appiah – could be more capable than the group of players who reached Nations Cup Final 2015 in Equatorial Guinea.

"The group was built over a longer period of time. Back in 2015, manager Avram Grant was brand new and so had to select players over a short period of time without having to have a long time to put them together.

"This time around, the experience as a group is more tight as they have three training camps, through quality, they were through friendlies and this manager is taking this squad around this competition to do our best.

"Thomas Partey is first class. You can see his quality, you can see why he is a man who wants it. The man is a great talent. And the whole team should be much better .

"Since 2015, all international breaks or competitions are gone, the whole thing was in my mind that we need the trophy to get that."

"It really deals with me and it's so close to my first attempt that I understand how important it is to win that trophy. We hope we can reach the trophy this year."

Ghana will play in Group F of the African Nations Cup 2019 in Egypt alongside Cameroon, Benin and Guinea-Bissau.
