Ghana’s men’s under 23 team, the Black Meteors have held their first training session in Egypt ahead of their opening match at the U-23 African Cup of Nations tournament on Friday.
The players were taken through their paces by the technical team in preparation for their game against Cameroon.
The players arrived in Cairo on Tuesday but didn’t wait too long before getting down to business on the pitch.
They have been drawn in Group A along with hosts Egypt, Mali and Cameroon at the tournament.
The tournament serves as a qualifier for next year’s Olympic Games, with the top three sides booking a place in Tokyo.
The Meteors will be hoping to qualify for the Olympics for the first time since 2004.
Head coach, Ibrahim Tanko said the players and his technical team are determined to make it to the Olympics
“We have only one mindset and that is making it to the Olympics. The players and the technical team know what lies ahead of us.
We are ready and we will go there to prepare. We have a few days to polish what we are doing before playing the first match. We have to win every match if we are going to be successful and that is our mindset as we go to Egypt.”
