AFCON U-20: We Must Beat Gambia To Qualify – Karim Zito

    Black Satellites head coach Abdul Karim Zito has declared their final group game against Gambia as a must win in order to ensure a qualification to the quarter finals of the African U-20 Cup of Nations. 

    This follows the Satellites goalless draw in the second round of group stages against Morocco at the Stade Municipal de Nouadhibou on Friday night. 

    Coach Zito speaking during the post match conference admitted his side were the second best in terms of chances created but was quick to applaud the defensive prowess of his team. 

    “Like I said before the game, any match involving Ghana and Morocco is a tough match at every level. It was a match of interest and a match of equals. Though we came into the game for a draw, we are okay with the result because four points still puts us in a good place to qualify to the next round”.

    Zito added that their last group game against Gambia is a must win in order to secure a place in the quarterfinals. 

    “We didn’t create lots of opportunities but defensively we were good because they were on the offensive often. The bottom line now is we must beat Gambia on Monday to seal qualification to the next stage”.

    The Black Satellites will take on Gambia with Morocco also set to face Tanzania simultaneously to determine the final rankings for the group.
