Minister for Youth and Sports, Isaac Asiamah has held a successful discussion with the president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Dr. Ahmad Ahmad in Madagascar over issues relating to Ghana football.

Last week, the continent’s football governing body called a crisis meeting with the Sports Minister to discuss the country’s hosting of the 2018 Africa Women’s Championship that has been hit by severe delays with just three months left to start the competition.
