Ghana head coach James Kwesi Appiah has claimed no team can be ignored at the Africa Cup of Nations ahead of Saturday's kick-off.

The 29th edition of Africa's continental championships opens in South Africa on Saturday with the host nation taking on Cape Verde Islands at Soccer City.

Ghana will play their first game on Sunday against the Democratic Republic of the Congo and while Appiah's side seem the obvious favourite to top Group B, the head coach remains convinced the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) will tough from start to finish.

"I believe that it's going to be very competitive," Appiah said.

"We're going to do our best but saying that there's no way you can underrate any team in this competition."
