Black Stars midfielder Agyeman Badu has cautioned the Black Satellites to tread cautiously as they engage their Zambian counterparts today in the ongoing African youth Championship in Senegal.
The National U-20 soccer side recorded a 2-0 win over South Africa in their opening Group B game last Monday, placing them in a comfortable position on the log.
To the Udinese man, their opening game result had the tendency to make them complacent, which could rob them of an opportunity to advance in the competition.
Badu, a member of the 2009 World Cup wining side, told DAILY GUIDE SPORTS in a telephone interview that ‘I expect the team to step up their game today. The only thing that can deny them progress is complacency.
‘They should play as if they had no points, that will make them hungrier and go for a win. They shouldn’t forget the Zambians lost their first game, and so will go all out to frustrate them.
‘I am urging them to go all out. It is not over yet, they should win Thursday’s game and remain focused till they lift the ultimate. It will not come easily, but from what I saw in the first game and their rich technical team, they will go places.’
Indeed, the presence of Black Stars coach Avram Grant in the team’s camp will be a great motivation to the playing body as well as coach Sellas Tetteh and his team.
