Published on: 22 November 2019

Black Meteors captain Yaw Yeboah is anticipating a difficult game against South Africa in the third and fourth place play off as the team secure the final ticket to Tokyo 2020.  

Coach Kwesi Appiah's side failed to seal automatic qualification after they suffered defeat to Côte d'Ivoire in the semis but the West Africans have a final chance to make a return to the big stage for first time since 2004.

Yaw Yeboah says the team has not come this far to let go qualification to next years Olympic games in Japan.

"It will be a very complicated and tough match. With all what we’ve done, it will be difficult to leave without anything at all. We will give our best to get this Olympic qualification," he said ahead of the game on Friday afternoon.

Yeboah has scored two goals in the competition so far.
