Ahead of the U23 AFCON Tournament to be hosted in Morocco next month, President of the Ghana FA Kurt Edwin Simeon Okraku has urged Ghanaians to support the team in their quest to qualify for the Olympic Games.
Ghana nearly qualified for the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2020 after the heroic performance of the U23 at the AFCON in Egypt in 2019.
But a last-minute penalty miss ended the dream of the team of returning to the Olympics since their last appearance in 2004 in Athens.
Led by the same manager – Ibrahim Tanko – who last qualified the team to their last AFCON in 2019, Kurt believes that with support from Ghanaians, the Meteors will return to the Olympic Games again.
“Since we qualified for the tournament, the technical team has been working behind the scene to ensure we have the right level of mentality for the players.
“We have a competitive team and I believe with the right levels of support from the FA and government through the Sports Ministry, Ghana will be represented by warriors who will play their hearts out to ensure we qualify.
“With prayers from the 30 million Ghanaians, I am sure we’ll make it,” he told Juliet Bawuah in an interview on SuperSport.
