Ghana Black Satellites head coach Sellas Tetteh says his main aim is to qualify for the upcoming World Youth Championship in New Zealand later this year.
“We are taking this tournament very, very serious because our country believe in the development of youth, and at the moment I can say we were fortunate to get our first win and we are bent to at least try to qualify for the World Cup [Youth], if by the grace of God we secure another win,” Sellas Tetteh told the press ahead of the game.
Ghana secured a 2-0 win over South Africa in their opening Group B encounter in Mbour on Monday, and are a win away from booking their ticket to the World Cup and the semi – final of the African Youth Championship.
Standing in the way of the former World Youth champions is Zambia, but Sellas is hopeful of surmounting the challenge they will pose and qualify to the tournament [World Youth Championship] which kicks off in May 2015.
Midfielder, Clifford Aboagye, who will be playing his second World Cup finals at U-20 level, says he’s seen as a senior player in camp and he is motivating his colleagues.
“This is my second tournament and I’m not under any pressure,’ he said. “I think I need to do the things right and all things will be good.
“I have built match confidence now and I have been able to go on with the team because I have been with the team for two weeks now and I know the boys.”
