Ghana's CAF U-23 Cup of Nations final qualifying round match against Algeria has been pushed back to September, CAF has confirmed.

The two-legged tie originally was set for 3-11 June 2019 but will now be rescheduled between 2-10 September 2019.

According to Africa's football governing body, this is to give countries time to prepare for both the Africa Cup of Nations and the U23 tournament too.

The Black Meteors were billed to play the Algerian in Accra in June and the return leg in Algiers.

Ibrahim Tanko and his charges are seeking to qualify for the eight-team tournament in Egypt this November where the best three countries will advance to the 2020 Olympics.

Skipper Yaw Yeboah and his colleagues are very eager to make it to the next Olympic Games as it has been a very long time since Ghana represented Africa.

In 1992 in Spain Ghana won bronze in football at the Barcalona Games, but that record has been broken by Nigeria and Cameroun who won gold.

Many Ghanaians believe there would be some relief if the present generation of Black Meteors qualify to Africa and then to Tokyo, Japan in 2020.
