Ghana’s final 21-man squad for CAF U20 Cup of Nations
Ghana coach Jimmy Cobblah has submitted his final 21-man squad to CAF for the 2019 U20 Cup of Nations in Niger which starts this weekend.
The former Wa All Stars and Inter Allies coach left out 2017 FIFA U17 World Cup star Emmanuel Toku from the squad after the player failed to join Niamey for pre-tournament training.
Only four from the Black Starlets team which finished second at the 2017 Africa U17 Championship in Gabon made the cut.
They are goalkeeper Danlad Ibrahim, Ibrahim Sulley, Ibrahim Sadiq and Mohammed Kudus who will wear the iconic No.10 jersey.
Tanzania-based Enoch Atta Agyei is the only player based on the continent to be included in the 21-man squad.
Ghana open their campaign against Burkina Faso on Sunday before facing Senegal and Mali in Group B.
