THE PRESIDENT of Beach Soccer Ghana, Yaw Ampofo Ankrah, has reaffirmed his confidence in the national Beach Soccer team, Black Sharks, ahead of the CAF Beach Soccer final qualifier against Kenya on August 27 at the Pirates Beach in Mombasa.
The Black Sharks will be making an attempt to qualify for their second successive championship in a row, after making their debut in Seychelles in 2015.
The President highlighted the challenges the team has faced over the past few weeks causing their inability to begin residential camping. Principal amongst them is financial constraint but, is optimistic about qualification.
He said; “The Kenyans are a very strong side, they started training about six weeks ago which is good for them. But I’m certain that the Black Sharks will go to Mombasa and win.
“We are not complacent at all, the boys are very focused and willing to fly the flag of Ghana high.
“We are calling for support from all corporate bodies and, we hope the Ministry of Youth and Sports will deliver on their promise to support the team.”
The 2016 Africa Beach Soccer Cup of Nations will take place in Lagos, Nigeria in December 2016.
