The final qualifying match for the 2015 African Youth Championship qualifier between Ghana and Gabon has been moved to Accra.

The Black Satellites were initially billed to play the first leg tie at the Tamale stadium but the fixture will now take place at the Accra sports stadium due to financial difficulties.

Coach Sellas Tetteh’s side have adopted the Tamale stadium as their home venue and enjoy massive support any time they play in front of the home fans.

But financial constraints have forced the Ghana FA to shift the game to the capital.

“We planned to play [Gabon] at the Tamale Sports Stadium. In recent times, that’s where we play our home games but the Sports Ministry has made us understand that this one should be honoured in Accra because of some financial constraints,” Management Committee Chairman George Afriyie confirmed.

The Ghanaians will be eager to record a convincing win from the first leg to make the return encounter a mere formality.

The 2015 African Youth Championship will be hosted by Senegal from March 8-22.

    Give the Black Stars to Bobo period. He is tried and tested. He has a lot of experience. Indeed, he is not a trial and error coach.

    Bobo couldn’t handled the Rwanda national team how much more Ghana? Ghana and Nigeria has more egoistic players than Rwanda but bobo couldn’t succeed over there and in doubt very well if he can succeed with the bs!

    Remember in turkey, bobo had most of his tactics wrong and we ride on luck in most of our matches!

    AA is a good attacking coach with poor defensive mindset and if he can fix that aspect, he ll be the greatest Ghanaian coach ever!

    His attacking philosophy is awesome for a coach who was a defender during his playing days and again, u think about the fact that, how can a former strong defender has a poor defensive mindset!

    We need to fix our central defence and we ll win the afcon in morocco!
