Head coach of the Black Satellites of Ghana, Sellas Tetteh said his side’s 2-0 win over South Africa in their opening Group B encounter in the ongoing African Youth Championship in Senegal is a good result for any coach to be happy with.
An own goal from Modibo of South Africa and a Benjamin Tetteh second lob was enough for Sellas Tetteh to end his jinx of not winning the opening game of a tournament.
Speaking to Joy fm’s Benedickt Owusu after the game, the former Liberty Professionals coach said: “it was a result any coach would love to have in his first game.’
“I know we worked hard for it and getting this result is quite motivating for us to believe in ourselves; better still, we all will accept that it wasn’t an easy game,’ he noted.
According to coach Tetteh their opponent was a very tough one, technically sound opponent and ‘getting this result is very good for us’.
On his part skipper of the Ghana national U-20 team, Owusu Bempah said the team must work on their finishing in other to convert the opportunities when they come.
The Black Satellites created numerous chances, but could not make them count as they beat ten-man South Africa 2-0 in their opening Group B encounter in the ongoing African Youth Championship in Senegal.
“We created many chances,” he said. “But I think we were able to convert only two. There is more room for improvement as we prepare for the second game.’
“We still have a lot to learn. I think the result is good for us and we will take it on from there.”
The first two teams in each group will qualify to the FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand which kick off in May.
