President of the Ghana Football Association Kurt Okraku has charged the Black Meteors to break the 16-year Olympic Games qualification failure in the upcoming U-23 AFCON to be hosted in Egypt which kicks off from November 8-22.
"It's been sixteen years since we qualified to the Olympics and you have about three or four games away from a ticket to the Olympics. We believe you can do it so believe in yourselves and do it for Ghana."
The GFA President also advised the players to listen attentively to their technical team throughout their campaign in Egypt.
A member of the GFA Executive Council, Randy Abbey, also urged the team to seize the golden opportunity presented them to make history.
"You have a chance to make history; a chance to end our long wait to the Olympics. Please go all out and make history," Randy Abbey told the players.
The Black Meteors are in Group A alongside hosts Egypt, Mali and Cameroon. Ghana opens her campaign against Cameroon on the opening day before facing Egypt and Mali on 11 and 14 November respectively.
The top three finishers at the final tournament will qualify to represent Africa at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
Ghana is seeking a return to the competition since its last appearance in 2004 in the Athens Olympic Games.
