WAFU B Girls Cup: I will have to improve Black Princesses finishing - Coach Yusif Basigi

Black Princesses head coach, Yusif Basigi has expressed his frustrations over his side's lack of ability to kill games despite securing the final spot in the ongoing WAFU Zone B Women’s U-20 Cup of Nations.

Ghana's U-20 female side sealed a place in the last after a comeback win over Burkina Faso at the Baba Yara Stadium on Wednesday in the first game of the semifinal.

Stella Nyamekye, Success Ameyaa and Faiza Seidu were all on the scoresheet for Ghana, who recorded a 3-1 victory but the scoreline could have been more.

Speaking at the post-match conference, Basigi admitted his team’s attackers need to be sharp and clinical.

“It looks like the finishing is now the problem so it means that is the only area I have to work on even though I have a few lapses at the defence which I need to augment very well,” he told the media.

“I think that is one of the reasons why because these are new players that many of them have not even played internationally before. It’s a matter of time, everything will be fine,” he added.

The Black Princesses face Nigeria in the final of the competition following the latter’s 3-0 win over Benin in the second semifinal game.
