Ghana U20 World Cup winner Daniel Agyei believes the current team can be successful with the same level of determination as in 2009.
The Ghana international was the first choice goalkeeper when the Black Satellites won an unprecedented treble in 2009.
The team under the tutelage of coach Sellas Tetteh after winning regional and continental trophies, emerged the first African side to win the U20 World Cup in Egypt.
Agyei now believes a similar fate awaits the current crop if they are determined enough under the same manager who masterminded the unprecedented success in 2009.
“I think they can do it if they are determined,” he said.
“It is not easy. People outside think it is that easy but once you get in there you realize it is not easy at all.
“But with determination and hard work I think they can do it.
“That is how we did it during our time under the same coach.
“So I wish them good luck and hopefully things will go well.”
Ghana will begin its campaign in the African Youth Championships on Saturday against Egypt before facing Benin and then tournament hosts Algeria.
