Coach Maxwell Konadu

Coach Maxwell Konadu says the Black Stars will be armed and ready for revenge on Sunday against Nigeria in the final of the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations to lift the trophy.

The Black Stars B were comprehensively beaten 2-0 by CHAN Eagles last Monday in their final Group A match which sent them through to the last four of the tournament.

The hosts were in fine form as they brushed aside Niger 2-0 on Thursday night to set up a derby final.

Ghana stayed in the hunt to win the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations after an improved performance gave the Black Stars B an impressive win over Niger in the semi-final on Thursday night.
The defending champions advanced to set up a final clash with old rivals Nigeria, who needed a solitary strike by midfielder Rabiu Ali to progress at the expense of Benin.

Deputy Sports Minister, Pius Enam Hadzidze, has stated that there is a consideration to send fans to India to support the Black Starlets of Ghana at this year’s FIFA U17 World Cup. 

After what happened in Brazil 2014 where a commission of enquiry was set to look into Ghana’s poor participation at the tournament and fans treatment. This consideration has come as a shock to many. 

But Pius Enam insists getting supporters to India is crucial to the team’s chances of winning the competition.
