Ibrahim Tanko has confirmed Ernest Nuamah will join the Black Meteors camp ahead of the U23 Africa Cup of Nations hosted in Morocco.
The 19-year-old was expected to arrive late after spending the past week and a half with the Black Stars for the AFCON qualifier against Madagascar.
Nuamah had the opportunity of making his debut for the national team when he came on in the goalless draw against Madagascar.
So far, 26 players have arrived in Morocco for the tournament and Tanko expects Nuamah to arrive soon.
“For now, I understand Ernest Nuamah is going to join us. The rest will not be able to join so we only have to concentrate on those who are here. We already know Ernest and we’ve played with him during the qualifiers so know he is coming to add some quality to the team.”
The Nordsjaelland forward was expected to join the camp with Kamaldeen Sulemana and Ransford-Yeboah Königsdörffer but the pair won’t be making the trip.
“The others were not with us during the qualifiers but we felt they had qualities that could help the team since they are not here we will concentrate on those we played the qualifiers with. We are 100 percent sure that the quality is enough. Let’s hope that we will have all players fit for the tournament,” Tanko revealed to the GFA media.
The Black Meteors were victorious in their final pre-tournament friendly against Zamalek and will face Congo on Sunday for their U23 AFCON opener.
