Former Ghana U-23 captain Yussif Chibsah has has lamented how long it is taking Ghana to qualify for another Olympics after last doing so in 2004.
By the next Olympic Games in 2024 in Paris, it would be 20 years since Ghana last qualified for the tournament.
The former Asante Kotoko player, Chibsah, was the last to captain Ghana to an Olympic tournament.
He commended the Black Meteors and the technical team for the good game played against Algeria to qualify for the 2023 U-23 AFCON and is looking forward to seeing them qualify for the Olympic Games.
“The game itself was well planned and well managed. What we needed most was the qualification; the players and the technical handlers were able to do that for us though the goals are not many,” he told Asempa FM.
“This has been 20 years since we last qualified for the Olympic Games. I have been readying myself to hand over the captaincy to the next person but no one is coming.
“It’s been too long since Ghana last qualified for the tournament.”
The Black Meteors beat Algeria 1-0 at Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Tuesday afternoon to qualify for the 2023 U-23 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) on a 2-1 aggregate.
