‘We’ll not be complacent against Benin’ – Laryea Kingston

1 month ago

Black Starlets manager Laryea Kingston is optimistic complacency will not set into his team as he prepares his charges to face Benin on Tuesday in the 2024 WAFU Zone B Under-17 Championship.

The Black Starlets hammered Ivory Coast 5-1 in their opening game of the tournament and will be facing their Beninois counterparts at the University of Ghana Stadium on Tuesday evening.

The massive win over Ivory Coast has raised concerns about how Ghana will approach the game against Benin who lost by a lone goal to Ivory Coast.

But Laryea Kingston is convinced his boys will not be complacent when they come up against Benin.

“Complacency? Oh no! It’s not in our dictionary,” Laryea reacted when asked whether his boys will be complacent against Benin.

“We have our style and that is what we hope to show. We aim to dominate the game in terms of possession and win and that’s what we will be doing on Tuesday."

“As for the Ivory Coast game, it’s past and gone and we’ve forgotten about it. The most important game for us now is Benin and we will approach it with all the necessary seriousness,” Laryea added after his side’s final training session on Monday.

The Black Starlets hope to exhibit the ‘Agoro Football’ brand against Benin to maintain their top spot in the group ahead of the semi-finals.
