African Games: Black Satellites take on Mali in crucial encounter on Saturday

4 months ago

The Black Satellites will look to win their final group match against Mali on Saturday to seal qualification to the next stage of the African Games Male football competition.

The National U20 side won their opening game 2-1 against Burundi but suffered a 1-0 defeat to Senegal in the subsequent group match.

Coach Yaw Preko’s side will now need a win over Mali to secure 6 six points which would be enough to see them through to the next round.

Kickoff time for Ghana’s match against Mali is at 4:30pm.

Ghana won the 2011 edition of the competition beating South Africa in the final with current Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah in charge.

Nigeria, South Africa, Burkina Faso and hosts Morocco are in the other group.
