Satellites battle for a place in finals

13 years ago

Ghana remain just a game away from playing in the finals at the FIFA U-20 World Cup but need to go past Hungary first when both teams meet at the Cairo International Stadium on Tuesday.

The competition reaches the semi-final stage and Sellas Tetteh is seeking to become the third Ghanaian manager to reach the finals.

The Black Satellites have produced great attacking play with striker Dominic Adiyiah leading the competition's scorer's chart with six goals with his partner, Ransford Osei on four.

Both have combined 10 goals between them but would have to face a Hungary side who have bounced back to life following the return of striker, Krisztian Nemeth.

But for the African Champions, they must keep on going in yet another tough battle against an opposition who have finished winners in two games that went into extra time.

"We're happy to have reached the semi-finals. Ghana is the last African team still involved and we'll fight to make the whole continent proud. We'll give everything to return home with the global crown. We mustn't fail," Sellas Tetteh, the Ghana coach said.

Ghana will go into the game without the powerful centre back, Jonathan Mensah who is suspended for this particular game.
