TheTechnical Director of the Ghana Football Association, GFA, Benhard Lippert says the national U-17 team didn’t not present themselves well after their 3-1 defeat to Côte d’Ivoire in the ongoing WAFU U-17 tournament in Togo.
The Black Starlets were booted out of the competition following an initial 1-1 draw with Nigeria and then a 3-1 defeat to Côte d’Ivoire on Tuesday.
Following the game, Lippert expressed his unhappiness with the team’s performance highlighting the lack of typical strikers in the team as one of the reasons the team suffered.
“I’m not happy with the U-17 performance, we have really problems to score goals, we don’t have this kind of strikers who are real strikers but in all the referee decided this match today sorry to say this.”
According to Lippert, though the team didn’t present themselves well in the game, there were a few players that stood out.
He further added that there will be a need for a discussion with his employees to have a plan for the future.
“This was really obvious and there are a lot of things to do, this team today didn’t present themself as a team but still we’ve four or five prospects in the team,
“We have to discuss the performance of the team at the Executive Committee level and all the decisive people, not me alone.”
