CAF U-20 AFCON: Ghana U-20 coach Karim Zito anticipates tough opposition from Group C opponents

Published on: 25 January 2021

Ghana U-20 head coach Karim Zito says he is aware his team will face tough opposition from Group C opponents in the 2021 CAF U-20 Total Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament.

Nicknamed the Black Satellites, the West African side has been pitted in Group C of the upcoming tournament at the end of a draw held in Cameroon today and will face competition from Gambia, Tanzania, and Morocco.

Analyzing the draw in an interview with Happy FM today, Ghana U-20 coach Karim Zito says it will be a tough tournament.

“It’s a big challenge and we are hoping to also prove our worth in the competition. Morocco is a team that really disturbs Ghana a lot as well as the Gambia”, the experienced coach said.

Coach Karim Zito has however revealed that he is motivating his players to get the best out of them at next month’s tournament.

“I have told them that If they are able to win the Cup they will be the next generation of Black Stars players since this year there will be no World Cup.

“There are no minnows in World football now and we must be worried. Ghana has a lot of talents but we lack development,” the experienced coach shared.

The CAF U-20 AFCON tournament will be staged in Mauritania and has been scheduled to commence on February 14.
