“We are going all out to make Ghana and West Africa proud because we are representing the sub-region. Our target is the ultimate prize,” the gaffer said.

According to coach Karim Zito, he will invite some players from clubs in the Ghana Premier League to augment his squad.

“When I came back, I told my scouts I needed certain players, and luckily for me, the league is currently ongoing which will make it easy for us selecting the best to represent the country”, the experienced coach added.

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