The Black Satellites were held to a thrilling draw by a skillful Namibia U23 side on Sunday at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The Namibians emerged the toast of the few Ghanaian supporters who were present for the game.
Woody Jacobs’ side excited the fans with their skillful display – forcing the Ghanaian team at times to erratic play.
Some of the Ghanaian supporters left the stadium concerned over the performance of the Black Satellites’ performance against the Namibian U23 team.
But coach Sellas Tetteh is confident his team will be ready for the qualifier against Gabon having achieved the objectives set for the friendly draw against the Nambian U23 team on Sunday.
“We have our objective for this game and we have achieved this our objective,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.
“This is a friendly game and even though the result for me is important, the performance is also very important.
“We have detected some of our mistakes and we will be working on it.
“Remember also that this is the U23 side of Namibia.”
“I can assure you that by August 17, we will have a refined side for the game against Gabon.”
Ghana will play host to Gabon in the first leg of the ultimate qualifier for the 2015 African Youth Championships on August 17.
