Medeama duo Nurudeen Abdulai and Kelvin Nkrumah have been called up into Ghana’s Under-20 team to prepare for upcoming international tournaments.
The two players have been rewarded for their fine performances for the Mauve and Yellow.
Defender Nurudeen Abdulai has emerged as the revelation of the season for the club with his remarkable displays gaining inches in the country.
The young defender, who is tasting his first Ghana Premier League adventure, has overly impressed everyone in Tarkwa.
He has been nominated for Tarkwa Community Mining February Player of the Month.
He was voted Player of the Month for January 2023.
The two players have been called up former Medeama coach and now Ghana Under-20 coach Samuel Boadu.
The group consists of players selected from the two Black Starlets squads that recently competed at the WAFU Zone Cup of Nations, as well as others who were discovered through a nationwide scouting exercise across the 10 football Regions of Ghana.
The players will be screened and trained, and they will also participate in a couple of test matches during their stay at the Technical Centre in Prampram. The best players will be selected to form the nucleus of the next Black Satellites team. Around 150 players are expected to go through the screening process starting on Tuesday, March 14, 2023.
The Black Satellites missed out on the 2023 U-20 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt after failing to progress in the WAFU Zone B tournament in 2022. However, the new batch of talented players may help the team to bounce back and compete at the international level.
The selected players are expected to report to camp at 1 pm on Tuesday, March 14, 2023. This is a great opportunity for young footballers to showcase their skills and potentially join one of Ghana’s national teams in the future.
