''We missed out on the last tournament but it is good that we will be in South Africa next January to compete with the best teams in the continent. With the quality of players we have in the team we should be able to win the competition even though it is going to be tough out there. What is important is for us to start well and everything will fall into place,''he declared.
Apam is yet to feature for the team under erstwhile Mali and Togo coach, Stephen Keshi, he has struggled with injuries picked up prior to the FIFA 2010 World Cup in South Africa, but he feels he is back to his best and ready to serve his fatherland.
