Ghana U-20 in good health for Morocco clash
By Ameenu Shardow
The Ghana U-20 team have been given a clean bill of health going into their crucial game with Morocco on Sunday.
The Black Satellites just have to avoid defeat in Rabat to seal qualification to their third straight African Youth Championship finals haven taken a commanding 4-1 lead in the first leg game a fortnight ago in Tamale.
All members of the 20-man squad that travelled to Rabat on Wednesday have been declared fully fit for battle by team doctor Prince Pamboe.
“Everybody seems to be in good shape so we don’t have any issues medically in camp,” Dr. Pamboe told GHANAsoccernet.com.
“If anything at all it is the normal knocks from training which cannot be described as impairments or injuries.
“The good thing is that the match is on Sunday so we have good time but even if the match were to be played tomorrow, everyone is fit to play.
“The boys are medically sound to be able to compete.”
Ghana became the first African side to win the FIFA U-20 World Cup three years ago in Egypt.
The Black Satellites have however struggled to replicate close to the same feat as they bundled after just the group stage in the last championship in South Africa.
