Ibrahim Tanko set sights on qualifying Ghana to Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games

Black Meteors Coach Ibrahim Tanko is upbeat about his side’s chances ahead of upcoming Total U-23 Africa Cup of Nations.

Ghana’s U23 side booked their ticket for this year’s championship after edging the Fennec Foxes of Algeria 2-1 on aggregate in the final qualifying round.

The Egyptian capital, Cairo will host all games with matches at the Cairo International Stadium and Al Salam Stadium.

The top three finishers at the final tournament will qualify to represent Africa at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

“We are waiting for the official draw which is on the 2nd of October and our aim to qualify. We will take on any team that the draw throws at us” Tanko told reporters.

“If you want to qualify, you must win against any team. We are going to concentrate 100%.

I don’t think we have any stumbling block ahead of the tournament. We have to prepare very well.

We have to go with the mentality of winning the cup and so if we even finish second or third, we will qualify for the Olympics.”
