Kotoko youth team to face Brazilian giants Atletico, Benfica and Bayern Munich

Asante Kotoko’s U20 side have already arrived in Zurich for a world youth tournament and must prove their worth against European titans Bayern Munich, Brazil’s Atletico Mineiro and other heavyweights.

The Porcupets touched down in Zurich on Tuesday morning as Africa’s sole representation in this year’s FIFA Junior Championship competition and are hoping to lift the title on their debut appearance.

But, Karim Zito’s boys must overcome fine collection of talents from Switzerland’s FC Sion, dethroned European champions Bayern Munich, Benfica, Brazilian side Atletico Mineiro, Spanish side Villarreal and Greek giants Olympiacos.

Bayern and Benfica are household names when it comes to breeding fine football talents while Brazil is regarded as home of talent.

Villarreal and Olympiacos have advanced in the Uefa Youth Champions League and are expected to provide quality opposition to the Ghanaians.
