Accra, Jan. 6, GNA- Black Starlets Head Coach Ben Fokuo has named his final 28-man squad for the 2021 WAFU Zone B Cup of Nations in Kegue, Togo.
After the initial 150 invited players, Coach Fokuo settled on the final squad to compete for the title in Togo.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the participating teams have been given a special dispensation to name more than 21 players for the tournament which starts on January 5.
Bolga All Stars forward Bukari Sammed, Abdul Manaf Ibrahim of Attram De Visser Academy, Jonas Naafo of Nania FC and Zaidan Alhassan of New Edubiase United Football Club are some of the top players in the squad.
Ghana’s U-17 team would not play a part in the first round of games as a result of the number of teams in Group B (3).
