The head coach for the Ghana U-20 team, Karim Zito has insisted that his team is in Mauritania to win the Total CAF U-20 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) trophy.
Nicknamed the Black Satellites, the West African country is one of 12 countries that have traveled to Mauritania to compete in this year’s youth continental tournament.
Speaking in a pre-match interview to the first match of the Ghana U-20 team, Coach Karim Zito has opened up on his target.
According to the experienced Ghanaian gaffer, his aim is to guide the Black Satellites to lift the U-20 AFCON trophy.
“In football, there’s always a chance to make amends when you lose or when you don’t perform well. This time around we are coming into the competition as Champions of our zone. We are here to go for the ultimate and that’s the mentality of this team,” coach Karim Zito shared.
The coach added, “Ghana has a record of doing well when it comes to the U20 tournament. So we are here to sell the good football that Ghana is known for to the rest of Africa.”
Ghana will on Tuesday, February 16, 2021, take on Tanzania in the opening Group C match of the 2021 U-20 AFCON.
