Captain of the National U20 team Daniel Afriyie Barnieh says the team is in high spirits ahead of Monday’s final group game against Gambia in the ongoing CAF U20 African Cup of Nations in Mauritania.
Speaking at the pre-match press conference on Sunday, the Ghana forward assured fans that the team is poised to beat the Gambians and secure all three points to finish on top of Group C.
He further indicated that after the game against Morocco, the technical team played took steps to ensure that the morale of the players are high ahead of Monday’s game.
“We were a bit down after the game against Morocco because we wanted to win and also considering what happened to our brother Sampson. But the technical team took a good decision to take us out to the beach to refresh our minds and prepare us psychologically for Monday’s game. Now the spirit is high in our camp.”
“We are assuring all Ghanaians that by the end of the day we will fight to secure all three points and finish on top of the group”, the Hearts of Oak striker stated.
The game is expected to kick off at 7pm, same time as the other Group C game between Morocco and Tanzania.
The Black Satellites are top of the group with four points and four goals. Morocco are second also with four points with a goal while Tanzania and Gambia have one point apiece.
Should Ghana finish on top of the group, it will face either the third placed team in Group A or B.
