Black Meteors winger Evans Mensah is highly optimistic his side will secure qualification to next year's Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.

Coach Ibrahim Tanko's side must beat beat South Africa in the third and fourth match play off to book the final ticket for Africa in Tokyo 2020.

"Never give up at all in life, Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games Qualification dream still on course," Mensah posted on Twitter.

The Black Meteors have turned their attention to the game against Bafana Bafana on Friday after they lost to Ivory Coast in the semi finals on Tuesday.

The winger has been one of the top performers for Ghana, having won the Man of the Match in Meteors' first game at the tournament.

He scored in the penalty defeat to Ivory Coast after netting late in the game to keep the scores level.

The Black Meteors have not qualified for the Olympic games since Athens 2004.
