Mauritania coach Corentin Martins doesn’t have any fears regarding the possibility of being pitted against four-time champions Ghana at the africa Cup of nations in Egypt in June.

The Frenchman’s comments come a few days when his side succumbed to a 3-1 defeat to the Black Stars in a friendly match in Accra.

Al-Murabitun are set to make their debut at the continental championship, having beaten 2013 runners-up burkina faso and botswana to complete second in qualifying group I.

“I wouldn’t mind [meeting Ghana at the tournament],” Martins told GTV Sports plus.

“Ghana is a smart footballing nation, I saw them after I came with my team for the WAFU Cup of nations [last year].

“They are a really nice side and have achieved lots in soccer.

“But even as I said timely, apart from the host nation that i would prefer to avoid, I wouldn’t mind facing any team – which includes Ghana.”

The final draw for the 2019 Afcon is slated for April 12.

The tournament, the 32nd edition, is regular to run between june 21 and July 19.
