CAF U-23 Championship: ‘Black Meteors will be in good form against Congo’ – Ibrahim Tanko


Ghana’s Black Meteors head coach Ibrahim Tanko says his team will be in a good form this afternoon in their opening game of the 2023 CAF U-23 Championship in Morocco.

Tanko has assured fans of quality Football at 3pm today in Rabat when Ghana clash with Congo Brazzaville in the second game of the ongoing tournament.

According to him, his team has had enough preparation though their few details to tackle ahead of their first game on Sunday, June 25 against a tough congolese team.

“The squad has prepared well, and we recently defeated Zamalek 4-1. This match concluded our training camp in Egypt, and I’m quite satisfied with what the boys produced during this preparation. We still have a few details to address.”

“I participated in the last World Cup with the Black Stars, and every time I put on the jersey, I feel like I have superpowers. You know, once you’ve tasted a tournament of the magnitude of the World Cup, you only wish for one thing: to experience it again. The Olympics are a competition of the same caliber.”

“We didn’t take well to our failure to qualify for Tokyo 2023. It left a bitter taste. My players are motivated, and they just want to start playing. It won’t be easy against Congo.”

“We have conducted multiple video sessions to analyze their game. The boys need to be in top form because there won’t be any warm-up matches,” added Ibrahim Tanko.

Ghana are in the same group as hosts nation Morocco, Guinea and Congo and will face the Congolese at 3pm.
