Ghana U20 coach Sellas Tetteh has hailed his team for making the last four of the African Youth Championships.
The Black Satellites recovered from an open day defeat to Egypt to win two games on the bounce in Group A to qualify for the semi-finals in Algeria.
Ghana scraped pass Benin in the second group game before attaining a more comprehensive 2-0 win over hosts Algeria on Friday.
The win over the Junior Desert Foxes also saw the Black Satellites qualify for the World Youth Championships as one of Africa’s four representatives.
And coach Tetteh who led the side to global success in 2009 sounded proverbial in his praise for the team.
“It has not been easy but perhaps it was good for us to have lost the first game because it propelled us to work harder in the subsequent games,” he told Kumasi-based Kessben FM.
“Within one week we have played four matches and all the matches have been difficult.”
Ghana will now face Mali on Tuesday for a place in the grand finale.
