Vice Chairman of the Black Satellites Management Committee [Albert Commey] has invoked winning mentality into the players of the Ghana U-20 team ahead of their 2020 WAFU Zone B U-20 championship game against Nigeria.

The Black Satellites face the Flying Eagles this afternoon at the ongoing tournament in Benin.

The match is Ghana’s first group game after drawing a bye in the first round of games. Ghana’s group comprises 3 teams meaning, a win will be enough to book a last 4 berth; with the top two teams in the competition securing spots at next year’s Africa U-20 Championship.

“Play the game already in your mind even before tomorrow comes. You need total concentration and therefore must eschew things that can potentially affect your concentration,” Commey told the players after their final training session.

“When the Satellites do well, it reflects on the future of the Black Stars. So, if you want to be counted among the standouts, it all starts from tomorrow [against Nigeria]. The first match is very important. Let’s take all three points,” Mr. Commey added.

The crunch game will be held at Stade de Gaules at 4pm. A win for Ghana will put them in the driving seat following the 1-1 draw between Nigeria and Cote D’Ivoire in their opening Group B game.
