We are on course to build a strong Ghana U20 national team – Randy Abbey

Published on: 25 May 2023

Black Satellites Management Committee Chairman, Randy Abbey, has indicated that the technical team of the Ghana U20 team is on course to building a strong team.

The Ghana U20 team on Wednesday came from behind to defeat WAFA SC 3-1 in a friendly match as part of preparations for the 2023 WAFU Zone B U20 Cup of Nations tournament.

Speaking to Citi Sports, Randy Abbey has provided an update on the team’s preparations, insisting that things are in place for coach Samuel Boadu and his assistants to build a formidable side.

“I think the team is at the preparatory stage and the technical team started working on this team less than three months ago.

“It is still work in progress and this will be considered as perhaps the first phase of building a formidable under-20 squad.

“The coaches have done a lot of monitoring this season, in the premier league, the division one, and division two as well and the aim is to continue giving some players the opportunity,” Randy Abbey said.

The Black Satellites management committee chairman added, “And so it is a process that will continue until the WAFU competition kicks off which will serve as qualifiers for the AFCON.

“I think that we have started quite early, I think that so far, we are on course. I am hoping that, by the time we get to the competitive stage, we would have been able to build a good squad.”

At the WAFU Zone B U20 Cup of Nations tournament, Ghana will feature in Group A where the Black Satellites will face off with Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, and Niger.
