Our main target is to secure qualification to World Cup - Black Satellites forward Emmanuel Duah

Published on: 28 December 2020

Black Satellites forward Emmanuel Agyemang Duah says his side's focus is to qualify for the 2021 FIFA U20 World Cup to be staged in Indonesia.

Ghana came from behind to beat Burkina Faso 2-1 at the Charles de Gaulle stadium in Porto-Novo, Benin to clinch Wafu B Cup of Nations title a week ago.

Duah was one of the consistent players for Coach Karim Zito's side who has booked a place in next year's Africa U-20 Cup of Nations.

Speaking to Adam Nazir on Madiba Official on YouTube, 17-year-old claims the Satellites remain determined and ready to secure a place in Indonesia.

"Our target going into the WAFU was to qualify for the U20 AFCON and bring the trophy home but our main focus right from day one is to secure qualification to the World Cup", he said.

He added, "I was in the first batch so it wasn't easy and besides that was my first national team call up. All I needed then was confidence to keep me moving and my coaches did that."

"In the beginning it was difficult but after a week or two, I gathered my pieces. Going forward when Coach Karim Zito identified the potentials in me, he also helped me a lot to settle well in the team."

On the tournament itself, the Ebony FC winger said; "Most difficult game? I will choose the game against Nigeria. The thing is, any Ghana play Nigeria, is always like a war regardless the level being it at senior or youth. It is always a tough game. I was at the bench although but I could still feel the heat even before I came on."
