Follow the LIVE-play-by-play between Ghana’s U-23 versus Cameroon U-23 in the AFCON U-23 Cup of Nations.
Ghana has not qualified for the Olympic Games since 2004 when the Games were held in Athens.
Ibrahim Tanko will be leading the team to Egypt hoping to grab one of the three slots to qualify for the competition. If he is able to pull it off, he will become the first coach in over a decade to qualify the team to the multi-sports event.
Meanwhile, Tanko will have to rely on his new players at the tournament as he will be missing some key players in his squad.
Ghana will be without Joseph Paintsil (Genk), Dauda Mohammed, Nicholas Opoku (Udinese), Majeed Ashemiru (Salzburg), Bernard Tekpertey (Dusseldorf), as their clubs failed to released them for the tournament.
Ibrahim Tanko has now switched his attention to some new players and has handed debut call ups to Evans Mensah (HJK, Finland), Frank Arhin (Dalkurd, Sweden), Robin Polley (Ado Den Hagg), Ropapa Mensah and Samuel Obeng (Real Oviedo).
