Ghana coach Maxwell Konadu has warned his Black Satellites team that this Sunday's clash against Morocco will be the toughest test so far.

The men's U-20 team host their North African opponents in the first leg of the final-round qualifier for the 2013 African Youth Championship at the Tamale Stadium.

Konadu, who hopes his side can push for a good first leg win to improve their chances of reaching next year's finals has cautioned his team against looking beyond Sunday's match.

"This will be our toughest task so far," Konadu said ahead of the game.

"We need to be relaxed but be filled with the determination needed to win such a game. We must get a good home result."

The Ghana coach fully expects his side to claim a win in Tamale and continue their great work towards qualifying as the aggregate winner over both legs will qualify for next year's Championship in Algeria.

"I'm confident we'll keep up the good work on Sunday. We have to impose ourselves on the game against Morocco, create chances and not be in a rush but finish off well," he explained.

Seven teams will make it from the qualifiers and join hosts, Algeria, in the finals next year.
