Ghana ‘s Under-17 coach Paa Kwesi Fabian is looking forward to a good start in the 2017 Africa Junior Championship ahead of their opening group A game against Cameroon on Sunday.
The Starlets on Tuesday defeated Gabonese lower division side FC 109 by 3-0 in a friendly game in Port-Gentil. Coach Fabin s expecting a remarkable start to the campaign
“I had the opportunity to watch Cameroon, I have also watch Gabon but unfortunately I have been unable to watch Guinea,” he told Starr Sports
“I have spoken to the boys and they know what is ahead of them, we will do everything possible to win our first game to boost our chances in the competition.
“Is just one game at a time and we are looking forward to our game against Cameroon.
On a mission to rewrite the history books is Ghana coach, Samuel Fabin, who has been tasked with guiding the teenagers to the summit.
This would be his third shot having faulted at the 2013 edition of the continental championship in Morocco, where the team failed to reach the last four, before the ghost of disqualification haunted them two years later.
“The last 10 years has not been good for Ghana football especially at the U-17 level as we have failed to make it to the World Cup, which hitherto was a constant feature for the country. So the main aim of this team will be to qualify to the World Cup slated for India,” he said.
“The coaching staff, Management and the players are hoping we seal qualification by the second game. We want to qualify in grand style and that we want to achieve by the end of the first two games so that it would put us in a relax mood to tackle the rest of the games,” added Fabin.
