Fobih joins Black Meteors … ahead of today’s U-23 AFCON qualifier with Togo

Ibrahim Tanko has invited former Black Satellites skipper, Kingsley Fobi to the Black Meteors camp ahead of today’s clash against the Junior Hawks of Togo in the penultimate AFCON qualifier.
The Meteors will host the Togolese U-23 team in the first league tie of the qualification round at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium today.

“It is true that I have earned a call-up to the Ghana U23 team ahead of the Togo game,” Fobi told Kickgh.com.

The 20-year-old currently plays for Spanish third-tier side UD Ibiza where he has made 12 appearances in the ongoing season.

 

His invitation is expected to boost the team which must secure a respectable victory to cushion them against the second leg.

 

Meanwhile, the Togo U-23 national team has arrived in Ghana for the AFCON U-23 qualifier.

 

Togo arrived in Kumasi late Sunday afternoon and has camped in the Ashanti Region for today’s game.

The match scheduled for the Baba Yara Stadium is the first leg of an outstanding first round fixture in the qualifiers to Egypt 2019.

It was originally fixed to be honoured in November but both countries wrote to CAF for postponement to December.

Head Coach Jean Paul Abalo has selected 18 players for the short trip.

Among the squad are 19-year-old Atik Fousseni Traoré who plays for French side Montpellier and 21-year-old midfielder Victor Mensah.

The team held its mandatory training exercise at the match venue, Baba Yara Sports Stadium yesterday.

Togo will host the second leg in Lome on Saturday, December 22.

Below is the Togo squad:

Soumanou Fadil, Toudji Messan, Djoyagbo Kodjovi, Yenoussi Guillaume, Boko Marco, Mensah Victor, Klidje Thibault, Fousseni Atik, Balgou Yendoutien, Ahoro Jarry, Nyavedji Elom, Anika Kossi, Wogodo Thomas, Aigba Abdoul-moubarak, Agbadji Komi, Sogba Bernard, Amah Kamaloudine and Akoro Bilali.
