Captain for the Ghana u-23 team, Yaw Yeboah has disclosed that the foreign-based players that recently joined the camp of the team are ready to feature in their match against Algeria later today.

The West African country is set to welcome its counterpart from North Africa for the first leg of a two-legged encounter in the final qualifying round to the U-23 Cup Of Nations (CAN).

In a bid to ensure the Black Meteors triumph in the upcoming assignment, Ibrahim Tanko who is the manager for the Ghana team invited some foreign players to augment the local-based squad.

The players, unfortunately, could not join camp early and only arrived three days ago.

Speaking in an interview with the media, CD Numancia attacker Yaw Yeboah has indicated that all the foreign players are ready despite their late arrival.

“We came as a group and we have done what we are supposed to do. The coaches are impressed and we the boys we are also working really hard”.

“So for me, I think the team, the players, and the coaches we see ourselves to be ready for this game”.

“It is better we came two days because we were playing games in our clubs and we can’t just come without playing the game. We got two days, some got three days and that for me I think that’s okay”.

“We will get used to the pitch and the weather as well. And for this is the best for us. It is better than nothing”, the Ghana captain shared.

The Ghana-Algeria match will be played at the Accra Sports Stadium at 15:00GMT.
