Players and technical team of Ghana’s U17 broke into tears after exiting the 2013 African Junior Championship last Saturday.

The Black Starlets drew 0-0 with Ivory Coast in Casablanca to finish third in Group B and miss out on semi-final slot.

They also failed to qualify for the 2013 FIFA U17 World Cup in UAE in September.
