Following the Black Meteors’ qualification for the 2023 U-23 Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco, head coach Ibrahim Tanko has pledged to strengthen his team ahead of the tournament.
Although eligible players like Mohammed Kudus and Kamaldeen Sulemana may not be available, Tanko has stated that he intends to invite good and quality players to reinforce the squad.
Tanko revealed that the team’s performance in the tournament would be enhanced if more FIFA dates were available.
“I think Kudus cannot play in U-23 AFCON but we are looking at inviting good and quality players to come and help us,” he said after the game.
“If only it’s a FIFA date. I think it’s the end of the season so we will have more of them.”
Ghana sealed their qualification after defeating Algeria 1-0 at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, with Abdul Fatawu Issahaku scoring the winning goal. Despite failing to convert several chances, Ghana managed to hold on for the win.
