With just hours to the kick-off of the final match of the WAFU Zone B which serves as the qualifying game for CAF U-17 Africa Cup of Nations next year, Ghana U17 coach, Karim Zito has disclosed to a Ghanaian publication that
The match holds in Niamey, Niger Republic at 7.30pm Nigerian time as the Black Starlets come up against their arch-rivals in the grand finale.
Ghana remains the only undefeated side at the competition having won two and drawn one in the three games it has played thus far.
But Nigeria will be starting as favourites particularly due to their size superiority.
Coach Zito, however, believes he has worked out a game plan that will ensure his side comes up tops in Saturday’s clash.
“I have seen Nigeria on two occasions and they are a very good side with a lot of qualities,” he told FootballmadeinGhana.com.
“They have a better physique than my boys but we also have some unique qualities which we can use to our advantage.
“My boys are mentally very tough and I believe our high pressing to stop them from combining play effectively will do the trick the trick for us.”
Only the winner of Saturday’s final will qualify to play at next year’s Africa Junior Championships to be hosted by Tanzania.
