Black Meteors captain, Yaw Yeboah has insisted that his outfit is ready for the Africa U23 Cup of Nation.

Ghana are making their debut at the continental showpiece since its appearance in 2011.

Coach Ibrahim Tanko and his team are set for an opening day clash with Cameroon in Group A.

Hosts Egypt and Mali are the other teams in the group.

“For me, it has been great meeting the boys again and I was happy to see them working hard," Celta Vigo midfielder Yeboah said, as reported by Citisportsonline.

"In our last pre-tournament match in Ghana, I saw that we played well and we have taken a lot of confidence from that.

"We feel very confident and I can say that we are ready for the tournament.”

After Friday's opener, Ghana will face Egypt on Monday and finish off the group series against Mali three days later.

The champions, runners-up and bronze-medalists at the end of the competition will again be rewarded with tickets to represent Africa at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games in Japan.

The tournament begin on November 8 to 22.
Ghana have not qualified for the Olympics since 2004.
