Boah disclosed he knows the team can win the trophy and they are preparing well to win Ghana’s fourth African title at the U20 level on Saturday.

“First of all, I am so happy, and we thank God for the victory,” h said after the game against Gambia," the Dreams FC striker said.

“We are ready to face any team [Uganda] that is going to qualify for the final.

“We are going to prepare and prepare hard; we can do it and we know we will win the cup.”

Boah has scored three goals in 5 games at the competition but is behind Uganda’s Derrick Kakooza in the goal king chart, who has 5 goals, after hitting a hat-trick in the Tunisia game.
