THE LIST: Ghana’s final 21-man list for Africa Youth Championship

Sellas Tetteh has announced his final 21-man squad for the 2015 African Youth Championship to be staged in Senegal next month.

The Black Satellites squad will count on the experience of Spain-based midfielder Clifford Aboagye who was the third best player at the previous U20 World Cup in Turkey two years ago.

The Granada player will join the squad dominated by players who ply their trade in the Ghana top-flight with 15 players from the First Capital Premier League named in the squad.

The GN Bank Division One League also boasts of five players in the squad which includes three goalkeepers, seven midfielders, eight midfielders and three strikers.

The Black Satellites have been paired in Group B alongside Zambia, South Africa and Mali.
