Former Ghana U17 Coach David Duncan backs team to win trophy in Gabon Featured

Former Black Starlets Coach David Duncan has urged the team to win this year’s Africa U17 Championship currently ongoing in Gabon.

 

Ghana secured a place in the last four of the competition with a deserving 5-0 triumph over the host (Gabon) on Wednesday.

Coach Paa Kwesi Fabin’s side having booked a place at the FIFA World Cup in India are now in contention for the trophy.

David Duncan who supervised Ghana’s U17 team to the finals in 2005 has backed the team to clinch the title this time.

“I have been watching them and I must say we have a really good team, the young boys have been excellent in their two matches so far,” the former Kotoko and Hearts of Oak Coach told Atinka FM.

“The trend at the U17 level has changed, this time we have lots of European team’s coming to Africa to poach talents and so the little effort you put in will help you win the trophy and I see this particular team doing that.

“They just need to maintain the performance they have exhibited so far and I believe they can win it by the end of the competition.”

Ghana will next take on Guinea in their final Group game on Saturday.

The former Africa Champions have failed to win the trophy since 1999.
