After an unsuccessful attempt to make history with the National U17 Team, F.C TANGA’s dependable Midfielder, Abula Francis Agombire has been given an opportunity to make it into the National U-20 Team.
Francis Agombire is among some 30 players invited to the Black Satellites Camp and will be expected to report to the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence for the final selection.
The youngster has been playing regularly for F.C TANGA and been very effective in handling the Club’s Midfield, ever since he joined the Club’s Senior Team. Abula as popularly called, was part of the Team that qualified F.C TANGA to the Division One League last year and will be a player to watch in Zone One when the Division One league starts.
Chief Executive Officer of F.C TANGA, Humul Khulsum Tahiru in an interview said Francis Agombire deserves the invitation considering his current form.
“Am aware Francis has been praying for this opportunity and he has been training and preparing himself to grab it. Thank God the time has come and the ball is now in his court…..he is a good player, strong and fast and if he decides to go all out at Prampram, I will not be surprised if he makes the final list.”
According to the F.C TANGA C.E.O, this year has started well for her Club and she looks forward to better days and results when the Division One league starts.
“Apart from Azeko Mandela who got elevated to a Premier Club status, four of our young players were also invited to justify their inclusion in the National U-17 team. Abdul-Rawuf Abubakar, Abdul-Razak Yussif, Benjamin Aloma and Sulemana Musah were among six players invited from the Upper East. Now Francis Agombire has also been invited to justify his inclusion to the National U-20 Team…. It gives us a good feeling and also gives hope to the many young players who have been made to believe that they can never be called to a National Team, once they live and play in the Upper East region.”
