Goalkeeper Ibrahim Danlad targets winning gold with Ghana u-20


Goalkeeper for the Black Satellites of Ghana, Ibrahim Danlad has indicated that he is confident the preparations the team has had will propel them to clinch gold at the 2019 Africa games.

Ghana is one of 8 countries that will be competing at this year’s edition of the games which is being hosted in Rabat, Morocco.

Danlad, 16, is expected to man the post for the Ghana u-20 team after earning a call-up following his impressive showing at the u-17 level.

Speaking in an interview with Kickgh.com, the Kotoko goalkeeper has stressed his desire to clinch goal with the Satellites at the end of the games.

“Every country is there to win, but with the kind preparations we have had so far before this tournament I think it is one that can galvanize us to win gold, Danlad said.

He added, “We will not downplay the threat any country can pull rather we will prepare adequately to face each country since there are no minnows in football again”.

He further shared that the Mali team is going to be Ghana’s toughest opposition in Group B which has been labeled as the group of death.

“I think our toughest opposition in the group stage will be the one against Mali. Mali has had some painful victories over us in both U-17 & 20 tournaments in recent times so we have to stop them this time around”.

Ghana’s other opponent in the group is Burundi and Senegal.
