Demba Ba predicts that Senegal can go far in this year's Africa Cup of Nations.

Newcastle United striker Demba Ba has predicted that Senegal can go far in this year's Africa Cup of Nations.

The Lions have been pitted in Group A alongside Equatorial Guinea, Libya and Zambia.

"We have been preparing for this competition for two years. We are a group of friends and most of us have known each other for a very long time. The good mood in our team will help us go far," Ba told

"Personally, I just want to carry on in this vein and win titles. That, after all, is the ultimate goal when you play football."

The tournament, co-hosted by Gabon and Equatorial Guinea, begins on Saturday.
