Published on: 14 September 2017

Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah believes the Black Starlets have what it takes to win this year's FIFA U17 World Cup in India.

Coach Paa Kwasi Fabin and his team left Accra for Dubai to wrap up preparations for the tournament which kicks off next month.

Hon Asiamah met the team before their departure and assured them of massive government support to do well in India.

“The vision of the President is to help the junior national teams to perform as it will help the senior side also” Asiamah stated during the Under 17 team visit to the Indian High Commission.

“For the past ten years Ghana has not been able to qualify for the FIFA under 17 tournament but we are happy that this year we have been able to qualify.

“The Government is ready to give you all the needed support in order for the team to win the cup for the nation because it has been 22 years since we last won it. We are behind you and the whole nation is also supporting you,” he stressed.

Ghana are in Group A with Columbia, USA and host nation India.
