‘The target is to qualify to the Olympic Games’ – Black Meteors coach Ibrahim Tanko


Ghana’s Black Meteors head coach Ibrahim Tanko is highly optimistic about his team’s chances of making it to the 2024 Olympic games in France, Paris.

He lamented about the team missing the opportunity to be in Tokyo during the last Olympic games in Japan after losing to South Africa on penalties.

According to him, the team has a very good chance of qualifying for the summer Olympics next year because they have a lot of players with experience.

“I think it’s a very good experience. We missed out on qualifying for [the Tokyo Olympic Games] Japan with one penalty but when I look at this squad I’m very hopeful that we are going to make it this time,” he stated after the game.

“And when I look at the game today and those who are yet to join us, I think this time we are going to make it.

“The target is to qualify to the Olympic Games but there is a cup also to win so we will do our best to win the cup but if by doing so but if we finish second or third and qualify, I think it is all good.

Ghana are in the same group as hosts nation Morocco, Guinea and Congo Brazzaville and the tournament starts on June 24, 2023.
