Kurt Okraku Urges Black Meteors To Beat Algeria And Qualify
Mr.Kurt Okraku, the president of Ghana’s football governing body has called on the country’s Olympic football team to beat Algeria in the second leg of the U-23 AFCON qualifiers and secure a spot at the tournament.
He made the call during a meeting with the squad after it held a training session on Saturday.
The Black Meteors were held to a 1-1 draw away in Algeria and as a result, the FA president has admonished the team to put that behind it and be focused on the second leg.
He was positive that the team could earn a place at the Paris Olympics next year from the AFCON in Morocco.
Okraku told the squad to forget the result and prepare for a new game against Algeria. He stressed that it is a game that will take us to not only the AFCON in Morocco but will give us a chance to qualify for the Olympic games which we haven’t featured in since 2004.
He drove home the point that 2004 has been a long time and it is important that the team keeps its focus and works towards a spot at the Paris Olympics.
The Black Meteors will face Algeria on Tuesday at Baba Yara Sports Stadium in the second leg of the U-23 AFCON qualifiers.
