CAF U-23 AFCON: Yaw Yeboah Confident Of Qualification Against Egypt

Black Meteors skipper, Yaw Yeboah has reiterated that they have what it takes to qualify for the U-23 Championship when they face hosts Egypt in Group A today.

Ghana recorded 1:1 with Cameroon in their opening match on Friday.

However, Ibrahim Tanko and his lads will be hoping to book a qualification for the quarter-finals at the 75000-capacity Cairo International Stadium.

“We will correct our mistakes and train hard to avoid the mistakes we made in the first game," Yeboah is quoted as saying by the official Ghana FA website.

“Every first game of the tournament is difficult. It was a new environment, new pitch and even a new ball and we have some new players in our squad so our performance in the opening minutes wasn’t because of low confidence.

“We are now used to the ball and used to the pitch and the environment.

“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.

“We know winning in the next match could propel us to the next stage and nothing will stop us from going for the win."

There have been concerns about Yeboah's fitness ahead of Monday's game following his injury withdrawal during Friday's fixture.

“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," the Celta Vigo man explained.
