The team, has been training on week days and on weekends at the Achimota Oval, to put the players in shape to enhance their chances of winning the tournament.

The team, which is made up of the old and new players, would this time have some young players who have graduated from the Under- 19 team and are knocking on the doors of the senior team for selection ahead of the tournament.

The Operations Officer, Mr Henry Ackom, in an interview with GNA Sports said “the coach is having a weekly training programme for the team and currently, there is a non-residential camping due to lack of funds for the team and the boys are poised to bring glory to the country.”

Mr. Ackom is of the hope that the team would do well, though they are facing some serious challenges in terms of sponsorship and has therefore called on corporate bodies and individuals to come to the aid of the team to help bring glory to Ghana.

The tournament is slated for 25th April to 1st May, 2016 at Abuja Nigeria.
