Black Meteors skipper Yaw Yeboah has declared himself fit to start for Ghana against Egypt in the U23 Africa Cup of Nations on Monday.

Coach Ibrahim Tanko’s side come into the game against the Olympic Pharaohs needing a win after their hard fought draw with Cameroon in their group A opener on Friday.

Yeboah was forced off in the second half against the Indomitable Lions, a decision he believes was precautionary and to prepare him for the teams upcoming matches.

“ I had a knock in the second half which really affected my play and I had to come out of the game for treatment and to ensure that I get fit for our next crucial games”, explained Yeboah.

Ahead of Monday’s match, the Black Meteors skipper has called on Ghanaians to continue supporting the team as they fight for a ticket to represent Africa at the 2020 Olympic games

“The first game has given us confidence. Ghanaians should believe in us to get the win on Monday and qualify us to the next round”, the midfielder reiterated.

Ghana’s match against Egypt will kick off at 8pm local time (6pm GMT) at the Cairo International Stadium.
