The head coach for the Ghana U-17 team, Coach Ben Fokuo has stressed that his players will need to work hard in order to achieve success in the upcoming 2020 WAFU U-17 Cup of Nations tournament.
Nicknamed the Black Starlets, the team is set to begin camping this week to intensify training for the challenge that lies ahead.
Speaking to the media team of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Coach Ben Fokuo has noted that his players are going to double up efforts in training ahead of the U-17 WAFU tournament scheduled to be staged in Benin from October 17-31, 2020.
“I think it’s been a long time since we experienced success from the U-17 team. We need to work harder, plan well, and have double training, and raise our games to the level of the past U-17 sides. That’s what myself and the technical team are aiming at so that we can bring back that love for people to see the new breed of U-17 players”, the coach said as quoted on the website of the GFA.
He continued, “So, we are working very hard to have a formidable team to represent the nation and so the boys are working hard for us to get that glory back. Because, if the U-17 side succeeds, we can get a formidable team for the U-20 side and the senior national team, the Black Stars so we will do our best, people should watch out for this team”.
Coach Ben Fokuo will have his players assemble to camp on Thursday, September 17, 2020, to continue preparation for the 2020 WAFU U-17 Cup of Nations.
