Tanko hints at call-ups for Kotoko players for Kenya Clash

Ghana assistant coach Ibrahim Tanko says some Kotoko players are likely to earn a call-up to the Black Stars squad for next month's 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Kenya.

Certain players of the Porcupine Warriors have excelled in their ongoing CAF Confederation Cup campaign.

Many believe they have given a good account of themselves for a call up the national team.

Ibrahim Tanko who has been watching the team since the start of their confederation cup campaign says he has been highly impressed with some of the players.

"We have been watching them, myself, coach Kwasi Appiah and Maxwell Konadu have been monitoring the team, they are the ones playing competitive football in the country and there are a lot of the players who are doing well so we are monitoring them," he told Joy FM

"In March we have the game against Kenya and hopefully one friendly match so hopefully we will give some of them the chance."

Kotoko midfielder Kwame Bonsu and goalkeeper Felix Annan are highly tipped to make the squad for Ghana's last Africa Cu of Nations qualifier with Kenya on March 23.
