Black Satellites assistant Coach Amadu Nurudeen is optimistic his side will record their second straight victory at the Africa U20 Cup of Nations despite admitting a tough opposition in Senegal.
Ghana takes on Senegal on Wednesday at the Maradi Stadium.
All is left to play for as both teams will be motivated having secured victories over Burkina Faso and Mali respectively in their opening group matches.
Amadu insists his side is poised and ready to become the first African side to book a place at the 2019 FIFA World Cup.
“Senegal is a strong side because they have a good youth set up but we have put yesterday’s win aside and we’re now concentrating on Senegal,” he said in a pre-match conference.
“Whatever be the case we will play and we’re motivated to win.”
Senegal progressed ahead of Ghana in the qualifiers for the 2017 edition of the competition despite losing 1-0 in the return leg after posting a 3-1 win in the first leg encounter.
This could possibly be an opportunity for Ghana to have a revenge over their opponents.
