AFCON U-20: Our Target Is Still To Win The Cup – Karim Zito

    Black Satellites head coach, Abdul Karim Zito says the objective of his team has not changed despite finishing third in Group C of the U-20 African Cup of Nations in Mauritania. 

    The Black Satellites of Ghana finished as one of the best third place teams in the tournament after suffering a 2-1 defeat to Gambia on Monday night.

    Having finished third in Group C, the Satellites have been paired up to face their West African neighbors,  Cameroon on February 25 in the quarter finals of the competition. 

    Despite the defeat, the Ghanaian Coach disclosed that though they did not top Group C, the objective of the team has not changed.

    He also remarked that, for this to be possible the team would have to work hard to achieve the target.

    “We did not get what we wanted but like I said, qualification is the key and we have qualified so we are going back to the drawing board, and correct our mistakes,” he said during the post match conference. 

    “If we want to have an impact in this tournament we have to work hard. We are still on our target, finishing third does not mean you cannot win the Cup.

    “The objective is still there and we will fight for the ultimate.”

    The clash between Ghana and Cameroon will be held at the Stade Olympique, Nouakchott.
