Ghana boss AkwasiAppiah said on Sunday he dreams to lead the Black Stars to the African Nations Cup title next year to have the honor of lifting the trophy as a player and coach.

Appiah was a member of the Ghanaian team who won the last of their four titles in 1982.

Ghana reached next year's edition after beating Malawi 1-0 in the second leg of the final qualifier on Saturday to go through with a 3-0 aggregate win.

"Being a coach my ambition was to try and qualify the nation to the Cup of Nations," Appiah was quoted as saying by Ghanasoccernet.

"Now we will do our best to repeat what we were able to do in 1982."

The four-time African champions finished the last edition of the Nations Cup in a disappointing fourth place last February.
