AYC: Return league against Benin will be tough - Jimmy Cobblah

Published on: 11 August 2018

Head coach of the Ghana Black Satellites, Jimmy Cobblah says the return league against Benin in Africa Youth Championship qualifiers will be difficult.

Ghana defeated Benin 3-1 in their first and must protect their advantage to make it to next year’s competition in Niger.

The two-time Africa Champions after missing out in the last edition of the competition are poised to make it this time around and must avoid defeat to Benin in the reverse fixture.

Jimmy Cobblah insist his side faces a daunting task to overcome their counterparts from Benin.

“It is not going to be easy at all, the second leg will be a difficult one because they will be motivated after scoring here in Ghana,” he told the media.

“They got a goal here which they will be counting on ahead of the second leg and so we must also do everything possible to prevent them from scoring there.

“I know they will open up over there because they will like to score more goals and we will also capitalize on that because I have sharp attackers.”

The Black Satellites arrived in Benin on Thursday ahead of the game.
