Chairman of the Black Galaxies management committee, Dr Tony Aubynn has asked Ghanaians not to applaud the team now as they are yet to achieve their target.
Black Galaxies defeated Benin 1-0 in the 2nd leg of the preliminary round qualifiers last Saturday.
By the virtue of the victory, coach Annor Walker’s side qualified to the final round on a 4-0 aggregate following a 3-0 win in the 1st leg at the Cape Coast stadium.
“We have not done anything yet but Ghanaians can congratulate and praise the team led by the technical handlers and the playing body for that superb performance against Benin,” Dr Tony Aubynn told Akoma FM.
“For us as a committee, we are yet to achieve our target which is to make it to the actual tournament in Algeria come next year. So, reserve the applause and let’s get there first.
“We did a great selection from all divisions, the team had a lengthy period to camp and also we have a great leadership with our head coach Annor Walker.”
Ghana will now face sworn rivals Nigeria in the final round in search of a ticket to the CHAN to be held in Algeria.
The Black Galaxies have yet to appear in the tournament since 2014 when Ghana finished 2nd in South Africa.
