“The tournament has been good, I always put up my best whenever I get the chance to feature,” Agbekpornu told Ghanacrusader.com

“My expectations for the South Africa game is to give out my maximum best if I get the chance to play. We are going all out so that we can qualify for the Olympics because this is the only chance for us.”

The National U-23 side were unable to secure a ticket to the Olympic Games on Tuesday after losing 3-2 on penalties to Côte D’Ivoire in their semi-final match played at the Cairo Stadium.

Coach Ibrahim Tanko and his charges will now have to beat South Africa in the third-place playoff on Friday to grab the final ticket to represent Africa at the Olympic Games.

The match will kick-off at 2:30 pm at the Cairo International Stadium.
