Ghana U23 Coach Ibrahim Tanko insists his side is battle ready ahead of the U-23 Africa Cup of Nations opening match against Cameroon.

The Black Meteors are set to lock horns with the Indomitable Lions at the Cairo international stadium on Friday before facing Egypt and Mali on 11 and 14 November respectively.

Ghana is making its debut appearance at the U-23 AFCON and are poised to seal through to the semis and secure a ticket to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

“I am very confident that the team will be 100% ready for Friday’s opening match against Cameroon and subsequent matches. The players are ready to deliver and are really committed to making the nation proud.

“I hope the players continue like this so that on Friday we will have a very good game. We know what we will encounter on Friday. We’re ready for the game,” Tanko stated after the team’s training in Cairo.
