Ghana U20 coach Sellas Tetteh has set his sights on winning the World Cup following the disappointment at the African Youth Championships.

The Black Satellites lost on penalties to Egypt in the final of the African championship in Algeria despite playing their best game of the tournament.

The team defied all odds to progress steadily to the grand finale but were unlucky to lose through the lottery of penalty shoot-outs to the Young Pharaohs.

But coach Tetteh who won Ghana’s first U20 World Cup in 2009 says his team will make amends at the World championships which will be staged in Turkey in June.

“We promised the minister that we will bring the cup (African Youth Championships trophy) but we were not able to bring it,” he said on the team’s arrival on Wednesday.

“But I want to promise the minister again that that project has been rescheduled to the World Cup.

“And that we will not come back empty handed with a silver medal but with the trophy.”

This means the Black Satellites must make it out of a tough group which includes; European champions and runner’s up Spain and France respectively and USA.

Ghana will open its Group A campaign at the World Cup against France on June 21.
