Ghana U-20 in good health for Morocco clash

By Ameenu Shardow

The Ghana U-20 team have been given a clean bill of health going into their crucial game with Morocco on Sunday.

The Black Satellites just have to avoid defeat in Rabat to seal qualification to their third straight African Youth Championship finals haven taken a commanding 4-1 lead in the first leg game a fortnight ago in Tamale.

All members of the 20-man squad that travelled to Rabat on Wednesday have been declared fully fit for battle by team doctor Prince Pamboe.

“Everybody seems to be in good shape so we don’t have any issues medically in camp,” Dr. Pamboe told GHANAsoccernet.com.

“If anything at all it is the normal knocks from training which cannot be described as impairments or injuries.

“The good thing is that the match is on Sunday so we have good time but even if the match were to be played tomorrow, everyone is fit to play.

“The boys are medically sound to be able to compete.”

Ghana became the first African side to win the FIFA U-20 World Cup three years ago in Egypt.

The Black Satellites have however struggled to replicate close to the same feat as they bundled after just the group stage in the last championship in South Africa.

    Please check your story before sending them out. The black satellites dont have to avoid a defeat but a defeat of 3-0 or more,since a 1-0, or 2.0 defeat will still see them thru. The first leg was 4-1.

    “STYLE OF PLAY”
    BARCELONA ARE NOTHING EXTRAORDINARY. ALL THEY DO IS THIS…
    EACH PLAYER IS LIMITED TO 2 AT MOST 3 TOUCHES ON THE FIELD. GET THE PASS, BREAK AND PASS ETC. THEY DO THIS THROUGHOUT THE GAME. THEY PASS THE BALL TO
    WHOEVER IS ON THE LEFT, RIGHT OR INFRONT AS THEY ATTEMPT TO SCORE. THE ONLY TIME U SEE ANY BARCA PLAYER HOLDING THE BALL IS WHEN THEY R IN
    THE 18 YARD BOX. PLUS, THE PLAYERS ARE CONSTANTLY MOVING. WATCH THEM VERY CAREFULLY. THIS IS HOW THEY BEAT OPPONENTS. THE MINUTE AN OPPOSING PLAYER ATTEMPTS TO HOLD UNTO THE BALL, ITS
    TAKEN AWAY IMMEDIATELY, AND THE CYCLE CONTINUES ALL OVER. THIS IS THE BEST WAY TO HOLD BALL POSSESSION.
    SPAIN HAS WON 2 EURO CUPS AND REIGNING WCUP CHAMPS WITH THIS STYLE. WOMP3 WEI NA WOP3 WHAT?
    IM PROLLY SURE THE SPANIARDS COPIED THIS FROM THE BRASILIANS. IT WORKS EVERYTIME…..MUAHAHAHAAAAA!
