Ghana U20 coach Yaw Preko has called on Ghanaians to throw their weight of support behind his team ahead of the Africa Games to be staged in Morocco.
The Black Satellites have been drawn in Group B alongside Burundi, Senegal and reigning African under 20 champions Mali.
Ghana will play their tournament opener against Burundi on August 17.
Speaking to the media before the team’s departure to Morocco, Yaw Preko said, “Let’s all support the boys and give them encouragement because I know for sure that all what this group of players need are prayers and encouragement and God willing good news will grace us”
He also anticipated that there will be tougher oppositions in the competition as all the teams that have qualified to the competition are strong.
“The mere fact that a team has qualified for a tournament makes that team a strong one and every game in the tournament is going to be very difficult. In the same way, any team that hears the name of Ghana will equally be frightened, the way other teams have prepared for us, we have also prepared for them”
