Ghana U20 Sellas Tetteh has played down his side’s defeat to Mali saying they will be up to the task against tournament favourites Nigeria.
The Black Satellites were beaten 1-0 by the Eaglets on Sunday in Mbour courtesy a powerful header from captain Ichaka Diarra on a corner.
Ghana’s inability to top Group B means they will now face sworn-rivals Nigeria on Wednesday in the first semi-final despite the wish of both countries to faceoff in the final.
Tetteh is refusing to attribute his side’s defeat to the four changes he made to his starting line-up for the final Group B clash.
“It is very good result for us and we have to look at cards and all things and this was an opportunity to see other players so clearly we took a calculated risk to see,” Tetteh told Accra-based Joy FM.
“I would not say it is because of that we lost so we are going to put our house together and face Nigeria. We are capable.”
