The Head Coach of Ghana’s U-23 team, Ibrahim Tankoh has confirmed that the plane which carried the team to Gabon for the 2nd leg of the U-23 AFCON qualifier nearly crashed.
And according to the Head Coach, they were in the air for almost 2 hours before the pilot made a forced landing at Doula, Cameroon and continued after they were given clearance.
“We arrived in Gabon safely but very scary. We were in the sky for almost two hours but couldn’t land because of bad weather and had to go to Douala, Cameroon instead of Libreville, Gabon and wait for more than one hour, before trying again. Thank God for travelling mercy. We are now in our hotel,” Ibrahim Tankoh revealed.
Ghana U-23 team will battle it out with the Gabon U-23 team in the 2nd leg on Tuesday, March 26, 2019, and the team that wins qualify for the 2019 U-23 AFCON.
