Ghana’s ambassador to Egypt Dr Winfred Nii Okai Hammond has offered some words of encouragement to the Black Meteors when he visited the team in camp.
The Ambassador who was accompanied by some staff of the Embassy assured the team of their total support throughout their stay in Egypt for the U-23 AFCON.
He added that the team should believe in their qualities as the future is bright and he sees them qualifying for next summer Olympics in Tokyo.
“I have a lot of confidence in this team. Because many did not expect that you could travel to Algeria and beat them there to qualify for this competition but you did it.
“Despite their senior team winning the AFCON, you fought well in Algeria and qualified to this competition,” Ambassador Hammond said.
“You qualified against one of the best on the continent, so you earned your place in this competition. So nothing should deter you from believing in your selves once again. The future for this team will not end here I believe you will qualify to the Olympic Games in Japan.”
Skipper of the side, Yaw Yeboah thanked the Ambassador for his visit and further assured him that the team remains committed to their objectives.
“Seeing you here alone gives us a lot of confidence to go all out in this competition and make the entire nation proud, Yeboah said on behalf of his teammates.
