Black Meteors Boss Promises To Add Quality Players To Squad Before U-23 AFCON
The head coach of Ghana’s U-23 Ibrahim Tanko has indicated he will strengthen his squad before appearing at the 2023 U-23 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament to be held in Morocco.
Ibrahim Tanko made the revelation after he led the Black Meteors to secure a place in the Under-23 level of the Africa Cup of Nations with a 1-0 win over Algeria at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
The coach has ruled out Mohammed Kudus, even though the Ajax Amsterdam winger and Southampton star Kamaldeen Sulemana are both eligible to play at the tournament.
He said he believes Kudus cannot play in the U-23 AFCON but we are looking at inviting good and quality players to come and help us, adding quickly that if only it’s a FIFA date, he thinks it’s the end of the season so we will have more of them.
The Black Meteors sealed their qualification after beating Algeria 1-0 at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi on Tuesday afternoon, giving Ghana a 2-1 aggregate win at the end of the two legs in the final qualification round.
