M’bour, Mar. 9, GNA – Black Satellites’ Michael Otou was adjudged the Most Valuable Player (MVP), in the team’s 2-0 over South Africa at the African Youth Championship (AYC), on Monday.

Ghana began her campaign on a head start following victory over the Amajitas at the Caroline Faye Stadium, in M’bour on Monday.

Otou who received a shield for his effort was instrumental in the victory, Ghana’s first opening win under coach Sellas Tetteh since 2009.

The Satellites, yet again confirmed their superiority over the Amajita, dominating every department in the match that saw the losers ending with a man less following Aubrey Modiba second yellow card early in the second half.

Ghana, perennial favourites of the tournament and winners   in 1993, 1999 and 2009, are chasing a fourth continental glory at the biennial   tournament of eight teams.

Ghana will next play Zambia on Thursday, before wrapping the group against Mali on Sunday, in the tournament that serves the qualifiers for Africa’s representatives at the next World Youth Championship (WYC), in New Zealand in May. GNA
