Ghana’s male Olympic team survived some scary moments in the air whiles the team was on its way to Gabon for the second leg of the U-23 AFCON qualifier.
Even though the Black Meteors have arrived safely in Libreville, they had to go through a hectic time in the air , spending close to two hours in the sky due to bad weather conditions.
The flight had challenges in landing due to bad weather, forcing Askyy Airline to roam in the sky for close to two hours without a clear way to land ,forcing the pilot to make a swift move by heading to Doula in Cameroon to land in the interim.
The entire team was later conveyed to Gabon after receiving the right signals and greenlight for a safe arrival. It would have been a different story if the Pilot had not acted fast to make a stop in nearby country Cameroon.
Head Coach of the team Ibrahim Tanko described the entire scenario to FootballMadeInGhana.com.
“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 traveling mercy. We are now in our hotel,”
The team have arrived safely and would train on Monday afternoon to acclamatize with the weather and environment in Gabon. The Black Meteors head into this tie with a four goal advantage and would fancy their chance against the Gabonese on Tuesday afternoon.
