For Ghana coach Paa Kwesi Fabin the job is not yet done as they host Cameroon on Sunday in the final qualifier for the 2015 African Under-17 Championship.

With a 2-1 first leg victory through strikes by Ernest Agyiri and Abass Issah, the Black Starlets will be looking to seal their place in next year's finals in Niger by wrapping up qualification at home.

The Black Starlets will go into the game at the Accra Stadium at 15:00GMT with the home support behind them but Fabin knows first-hand that counts for nothing in a decisive qualifier.

Cameroon, down in the first-leg at home would be chasing the tie and will be ready to compete for a place at the finals and prevent back-to-back defeats to Ghana.

"It's a big game for us," Fabin said."We want to qualify for the Championship but have to beat Cameroon again. The first leg doesn't mean anything now. It will only push the Cameroonians on to overturn the result.

"We expect them to fight but always we expect our players to be ready for the battle and focus throughout the game."

"We are not there yet. We have one important game to determine our chances."

The overall winner will qualify for the finals alongside hosts Niger for the tournament scheduled for 15 February – 1 March next year.
