Black Starlets

Ghana’s under 17 team, the Black Starlets, produced a swashbuckling display of football as they began their African Cup of Nations with a 4-0 win over Cameroon.

The Starlets served a good recipe of revenge for Ghana and the Black Stars in particular who lost in the same country four months earlier to the Indomitable Lions.

New Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah must pay a staggering $100,000 as compensation for terminating his contract with Sudanese top-flight side Khartoum Watani FC, it has been claimed in the local media.

The 56-year-old mutually parted ways with the side following his re-appointment as Black Stars coach.

Thirty home-based players have been selected into the Black Stars 'B' team to begin camping on Monday in Prampram.

The Black Stars 'B' are set to commence preparations for the 2018 CHAN Qualifiers and the upcoming WAFU tournament to be hosted by Ghana in September.

The Head coach and his technical team will begin the first phase of their training programme at the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence in Prampram on Monday and will end on June 15.

“This is what has made other nations great, strong and powerful in world football, so we don’t have to relax at all. There must be more financial injection,” Appiah, who is an icon for the competition added.
