Yaw Yeboah named in Ghana squad to face Senegal


Midfielder Yaw Yeboah has been named in Ghana’s U20 squad to face Senegal on Saturday in the 2017 African Youth Championship final qualifying round first leg tie.

The Manchester City player was drafted to play the second leg contest of the penultimate qualifying round against Ethiopia and he responded positively with a brace in the 4-0 win.

Yeboah, expected to play a key role in the contest, will be assisted by some key performers in the Ghana Premier League like Evans Mensah, Charles Boateng and Saliw Babawo.
