Ghana U20 coach Sellas Tetteh says he is not overly concerned by his team’s wastefulness upfront at the African Youth Championships.

“It is better we create the chances and miss them than not to create at all.”
Tetteh who led the Black Satellites to World Cup glory in 2009 however says his team will keep working to improve the striking.
“I agree scoring is the ultimate. That is the end result and therefore we will keep on working to ensure we utilize most of our chances,” he added.
Ghana have made it past the group stage of the competition haven and will now face Mali in the semi-finals on Tuesday.
The team has also qualified for the U20 World Cup as one of Africa’s four representatives.
