Published on: 10 December 2020

Ghana U-20 head coach, Karim Zito has indicated that he is not perturbed by the clash against Cote D’Ivoire this weekend even though he is aware the team will come in all guns blazing.

The Ivorian side drew with Nigeria in their opening match and now needs to beat the Black Satellites at all cost to have the chance to book qualification to the semi-final stage of the 2020 WAFU Zone B U-20 Cup of Nations tournament.

Ahead of the match, Ghana coach Karim Zito says he has no problems due to the fact that his team is already through to the knockout phase of the tournament.

"We were fortunate to have watched Nigeria played Cote D’Ivoire, we missed the first thirty minutes of the game. But we were here when they played since we drew a bye. Yes, for now, I don’t have a problem thinking about qualification, they will have to fight to qualify so I think it will be a nice game,” the experienced gaffer said in a post-match interview.

Coach Zito continued, “They will come at us just as Nigeria did today. For now, I’m not thinking of Cote D’Ivoire. I’m going home to rest and think of what to do next.”
