The communications director of the Ghana Football Association, Henry Asante Twum has revealed that some players of the Black Stars could join the U-23 team in Morocco.
According to him, the FA will sit with the technical team to the senior national team should the handlers of Black Meteors submit names of players in the Black Stars team for the upcoming 2023 CAF U-23 Championship.
“The two coaches will decide on it. Ibrahim Tanko will need to tell us his plans and which players he intends to take for the U23 tournament from the Black Stars”, he said.
“Once the players are made known to the FA, we will continue the conversation with Chris Hughton for his approval. If you will remember during Ghana v Algeria some players such as Issahaku and Ernest Nuamah who were eligible for U23 were permitted to play.”
“Kudus Mohammed, Kamaldeen, and Joseph Paintsil among others are all qualified players who can play for the U23 in Morocco, should the request come and Chris Houghton gives the permission, they will all be eligible to feature for the Meteors”, Henry Asante Twum told Akoma FM
Ghana have failed to qualify for the Olympic Games since their last time in 2004 in Athens in Greece and are desperate to make an appearance for the first time at the event.
