Ghana U-23 deputy coach Michael Osei has expressed his delight in his side's preparations ahead of their clash against Algeria in the U-23 AFCON qualifiers.

Osei says the players in camp are working hard for the crucial qualifier in September.

A win in both legs will see Ghana qualify to the tournament where they will seek to book a ticket to the 2020 Olympic Games for the first time since 2004.

Ibrahim Tanko called-up 24 local-based players last week and  Osei shared his observations in an interview with Kwese Free Sports.

“I think the players are cooperating very well. The intensity of the training sessions is very high because we do not have a lot of time left before the match against Algeria", he said.

"We have had to improvise a lot because the players were inactive due to the absence of a major competition.

"So, we are managing the training sessions very well but we can that they are responding and we are happy with what they did in the five days that they have been in camp.”

The first and second legs of the tie against Algeria will be played on September 6 and 10 respectively.
