Black Meteors winger Yaw Yeboah says he is driven by the target of sending Ghana to the Olympic football tournament in Japan in 2020.
Yeboah is part of the team that coach Ibrahim Tanko has called up for Saturday’s second round first leg U-23 AFCON qualifier against Gabon in Accra.
The team has been in camp for some days getting ready for the match and Yeboah told Citi Sports on Wednesday that he and his team mates were encouraged by the fact that they had the chance of sending the nation to an Olympic football tournament for the first time since 2004 in Greece.
“I think we are more motivated than pressured when we talk about going to the Olympic football tournament. It is our main target.
We have not been there for 14 or so years. For us, the only thing is to do our work and get there and the rest will follow. That is our plan in terms of qualifiers.”
The Numancia winger added that he was pleased with the preparations of the team and he was very delighted with what he had witnessed so far in the team’s camp.
“We are getting ready and the preparations are going well. I like the attitude and mentality of my colleagues and I think we have a good and confident team.”
Victory for Ghana over Gabon will set them up with the winner of the tie between Algeria and Equatorial Guinea in the third round.
