The Black Satellites will today clash with Cameroon in a quarter finals game in the ongoing Afcon U-20 Championship in Mauritania.
The Satellites who are underdogs in this game Will have to do a magic in order to overcome this free – scoring Cameroonian side.
Cameroon has a hundred percent record in this tournament. They top group A after winning all their three games including a 0-1 win over Host Mauritania.
The indomitable lions are very good with the ball, they won 0-1 against Mauritania in the opener, 1-0 against Uganda and then beating Mozambique 4-1, their form will be very instrumental for them when they take on Ghana tonight. They have scored six goals in the tournament so far and conceding only one.
Their attacking force looks sharp and should they start Etienne Eto’o in today’s game, it will be very difficult for the Ghanaians to contain the 18 years Real Oviedo U-19 striker. He scored two goals in their final group match, that was his debut game after sitting on the bench in their first two games.
The Black Satellites also has scored five goals in the tournament, they won 4-0 against Tanzania in their group C opener, then drawing 0-0 against Morocco and in their final group match. Which they needed a win to top the group C table, they succumbed to a 1-2 defeat against Gambia, which put them on third place in the group. They qualified as one of the best third placed team in the group.
Ghana coach Karim Zito said, that his boys are very much determine to write their names into the history books of Ghana, and that they will be playing a different game today.
Ghana in the tournament so far are struggling to keep the ball, and should they managed to do that today, they can cause much damages to the Cameroonians.
The coach will look forward to see his forwards performing well today as it will a tough game for them. Fataw Issahaku has been instrumental to the team, and should he find his scoring boots in today’s game, it will be a disaster for the indomitable lions.
