Poor show: Sellas: Our performance will need to rise

The Black Satellites must improve their performance if they are to win the U-20 championship, says coach Sellas Tetteh.

Ghana have qualified for the last 16 at New Zealand 2015 as Group B winners after a hard-fought 1-0 win over Panama at Auckland’s North Harbour Stadium. The Panamanians, who exit as a result of the defeat, were undone by a solitary Emmanuel Boateng goal, and missed a late penalty through Fidel Escobar.

Tetteh, who won the World U-20 World Cup in 2009 with Ghana, says the team “have to try to work on our weaknesses.”

“Our opponents surprised me today. I was in shock simply because at the World Cup you see such different standards of performance, and today Panama played very well, ” Tetteh said after the game.

“It was a hard-fought game and the slightly better side won in the end.”

“Now we have to prepare for the Round of 16. Its going to be very tough now and our level of performance will need to rise. We have to try to work on our weaknesses.”
