Black Meteors Team Using Taxis To Airport Motivated Them to Beat Algeria — Sports Authority chairman

The ill-treatment meted out to the Ghana U-23 Team ahead of their trip to face Algeria gave them the impetus to defeat Algeria according to Board Chairman of the National Sports Authority, Kwadwo Baah Agyeman.

The Black Meteors staged a shocking comeback to record a 1-0 win over Algeria in Setif on Tuesday to qualify for the 2019 CAF U23 Cup of Nations on a 2-1 aggregate.
 
In the interview with Saddick Adams Obama on Angel 102.9FM Floodlight Show, the former MP for Asante Akyem insisted that, comments regarding the team's poor travel arrangements are overblown and thus commuting with Taxis in batches was what motivated them to win.
 
"I think we are overstating this matter (of team using taxis) too much. For all you know that was what even motivated them to win the game."
 
"That was a source of motivation because when we give them luxurious treatment, they fail but when they went through this, see how they played".

"This is the reason why I believe we should slash down with the investment into the Black Stars" He concluded.
 
 
The Black Meteors  qualified on a 2-1 aggregate to join seven other African U23 teams for the third edition of the CAF U23 Cup of Nations to be held in Egypt in November.
 
The tournament will be used as the final qualification route to the 2020 Olympics Games to be staged in Tokyo, Japan.
