Ghana U20 Coach Karim Zito believes his side did the most important thing by qualifying to the next round of the Africa U20 Cup of Nations.
Ghana luckily sealed through to the last 8 of the competition after finishing as one of the two best third placed sides.
The Black Satellites only needed a draw to confirm a place at the next round but lost to Gambia who showed a lot of urge throughout the game.
Zito, despite the loss says his side did the most by making it to the next round.
“Everyone wants to beat Ghana. I won’t take anything from Gambia they did very well, we came all out to win they also came out to win and at the end of the day those who took their chances won,” he told CAFonline.com
“Congratulations to Gambia coach, but what mattered was to qualify and that was the most important thing. I wanted to top the group, but I couldn’t.”
Ghana will now face Cameroon in the first quarter final match on Thursday.
