Ghana U20 head coach Sellas Tetteh says his side has a ‘great’ future after they held Qatar’s Olympic team to a 2-2 draw in the Western Asian country on Tuesday evening.
The Black Satellites laboured to snatch a share of the spoils after the host took a 2-1 lead at the Al Arabia SC Stadium.
Fetteh Feyenoord attacking midfielder Samuel Tetteh opened the scoring with four minutes left for the break but the host returned from the break to equalise and take the lead before Bechem United’s Benjamin Tetteh climbed off the bench to equalise to end the tie in a stalemate.
Ghana entirely dominated the first-half and the last twenty minutes of the game. A quality, that excites head coach Sellas Tetteh.
“This team has a great future. Gradually they are becoming a group familiar with each other and I am very sure that before the tournament begins next year, they will be unbeatable,” he said.
We need more of such games to give the boys the needed exposure and experience in order for them to have confidence ahead of the competition next year. I am happy and even the boys themselves are happy because it was a very good exercise that taught them a lot.”
The Black Satellites are expected in Accra on Wednesday night but will fly out again on Friday to Egypt to play against their U23 side.
