Black Meteors head coach, Ibrahim Tanko, says
that his and his team have develop a winning way of thinking as they get ready
for the U-23 AFCON in Egypt this month.
The team will head to Egypt on Monday ahead of the tournament which starts on November 8 and their aim will be to grab one of the three tickets allocated to Africa for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics football tournament.
To do so, they will have to first go past the group stages where they will face Cameroon, Mali and Egypt.
Tanko believes that they are not worried about about the task at hand and they are driven to succeed in Egypt.
“We have only one mindset and that is making it to the Olympics. The players and the technical team know what lies ahead of us.
We are ready and we will go there to prepare. We have a few days to polish what we are doing before playing the first match. We have to win every match if we are going to be successful and that is our mindset as we go to Egypt.”
Ghana will face Cameroon in their first group match on November before facing Egypt on November 11 and Mali on November 15.
The Black Meteors have to finish among the top three nations to make it to the 2020 Olympic football tournament in Japan.
The team left Accra for Egpyt on Monday morning. We wish them all the best.
