WAFU B semi-final clash: Ghana poised to defeat Niger today

Karim Zito, the coach to Ghana’s Black Satellites is expecting qualification to next year’s Under 20 African Championship. His side will face Nigerien opponent today in the semi-finals of the U-20 WAFU Zone B tournament. With a ticket to the biennial youth competition up for grabs.

Zito has set a target of winning the tournament. Even though Zito’s target is win the trophy, his team has to win the match against the ‘Menas’ to qualify. A win will enable his team to qualify to the African competition in Mauritania before he can fulfil his goal.

Although the Nigeriens appear on paper to be the underdogs. They are unbeaten in their group and they ended up winners of their group. The Black Satellites are more accomplished than the Nigeriens when it comes to WAFU tournament.

The Nigeriens scored the host Benin by a lone goal and drew against both Burkina Faso and Togo.

Ghana, three-time U-20 champions on the other hand, placed second in their group. Having lost their last group against Cote d’Ivoire after qualifying earlier with a 1-0 win over Nigeria.

After a four- year absence from the global edition, Zito harbors an ambition of participating in next year’s edition scheduled to take place in Indonesia. The Satellites appeared on the global stage in the year 2015.

The stakes for this game are high and coach Zito counts on his boys to deliver their best performance to keep their ambition alive.

Zito showered praises on his team for the performance they displayed against their rivals Nigeria. With qualification sealed, his team lost to the young Elephants. The performance was underscored by the sides inability to score.

 Abdul Karim Zito Kabutey is a former Ghanaian International. He played as right back for Asante Kotoko.
