WAFU Zone B U-20 Tournament: Black Satellites assistant coach Evans Adotey optimistic of reaching final

Published on: 15 December 2020

Black Satellites Assistant Coach Augustine Evans Adotey is highly optimistic of qualifying the team to the final of the WAFU U-20 Cup of Nations.

Ghana will take on Niger on Tuesday in the first of the two semi-final games in the tournament.

The Satellites started the competition on a good footing beating Nigeria 1-0 to qualify for the semi-finals, only to lose by the same goal margin to Ivory Coast in their second game.

Speaking ahead of the game, coach Adotey is hopeful of reaching the finals.

"Immediately after the game yesterday, the Technical Director booked an appointment with me together with the Head Coach (Karim Zito) to brief us on how Niger play. This morning, we had a meeting and he gave us tips about Niger’s style of play," he told GFA's official website.

"He talked us through their style of play, the dangerous players, those with height, how they play, so he encouraged us to map strategy that will see us go pass them come Tuesday.

"So we will come up with a plan to deal with them and hopefully, we make it to the final."
