Satellites target early qualification against Zambia

7 years ago

Ghana's Under 20 side are looking forward to an early qualification for the semi finals of the CAF Under 20 championship when they face Zambia in the second Group B in Mbour, Senegal.

A win for the Satellites, who won their opening game 2:0 against South Africa, could also secure qualification to this year's FIFA Under 20 World Cup in New Zealand.

With the two prospects on the card, both Coach Sellas Tetteh and his players are determined to go all out to avoid any complications in the final group game.

"We want to qualify against the Zambians. We don't want it to go to the wire so we will do all we can to achieve that," Sellas Tetteh told

Satellites Captain, Joseph Owusu Bempah holds similar view and says the team is ready to go all out against the Zambians.

"We know what is at stake and we know we will not only qualify for the semi finals of the tournament but also the World Cup. It's a huge opportunity and we a re ready for them (Zambia)" said captain Owusu Bempah.

Zambia, who lost 1:0 to Mali in their opening match, will be battling to save their tournament as another defeat could spell doom for them.

Sellas Tetteh concedes the Zambians will be a tough side but he is confident his players will get it right again.

"We only have to concentrate, and avoid complacency. We are working towards that and I am confident they will get it right."
