Written by Christine Dzakah

Ghana’s Under-20 Football National Team, Black Satellites have arrived in Benin and are prepared to face opponents in the return leg encounter of the Africa U-20 Cup of Nations.

The team departed Ghana on Thursday morning for the game in Cotonou and will square off with their Beninois counterparts at exactly 3:00pm today in Stade Rene Pleven d’Akpakpa.

Ghana will be heading into the reverse fixture with a 3-1 advantage.

Coach Jimmy Cobblah and his team will need to avoid defeat to book a place in the competition to be held in Niger.

The Black Satellites missed out in the last edition of the competition which was hosted by Zambia.
