After two defeats yesterday, Kumasi Asante Kotoko’s U-20 side completed their group games with a 3-0 win over host FC Blue Stars and a goalless draw game with Spanish side Villarreal in day 2 of the ongoing Blue Stars/FIFA Youth Cup in Switzerland.

The Porcupettes, who lost their first two opening games in the tournament 3-0 and 1-0 to Benfica and FC Zurich respectively, showed resilience as they finished the group with four points after today’s games.

Kotoko will now have to wait to play another team from Group B to determine their position in the tournament which has 10 teams competing.

After the game, Youth Development coach, Abdul Karim Zito said in an interview that his teams’ participation in the 2014 Blue Stars FIFA Youth Cup would expose his players to perfect conditions for their development.

He said the tourney would in totality help Kotoko’s Youth team to grow since it would shape the careers of the young players in no small way.
