Ghana's No. 1

Belgium-based goalkeeper Abdul Manaf Nurudeen joins Ghana Under-20 squad in Niger

Published on: 29 January 2019

Belgium-based goalkeeper Abdul Manaf Nurudeen joined Ghana's Under-20 squad in Niger on Tuesday ahead of the 2019 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations next month.

Nurudeen, who is on the books of Kas Eupen, is expected to play a key role for the Black Satellites at this year's continental showpiece.

The foreign-based goalie will likely walk straight into the team following their struggles in friendly matches.

The two-time African champions lost 2-0 to Niger in an international friendly last week.

Coach Jimmy Cobblah is under mounting pressure after strings of poor displays in recent matches sparked doubt about the team's chances.
