Coach Maxwell Konadu has reiterated his determination to qualify Ghana’s U-20 team to the African Youth Championship.
The Black Satellites left Accra early Wednesday morning for the second leg game of the final qualifier against Morocco.
Ghana holds a healthy 4-1 lead going into the second leg and will seal qualification with a positive result in Rabat.
Konadu is however well aware of the immense impact a successful U-20 team will have on Ghana football going into the future.
Many of the World conquering Black Satellites team in 2009 are part of the nucleus of the current Black Stars team.
And the ex Asante Kotoko coach says he wants to get to the finals to be hosted by Algeria next year as bad as any other Ghanaian.
“We need this qualification. It means a lot to everybody (self inclusive),” he told GHANAsoccernet.com
The Black Satellites are fighting to erase the massive disappointment meted Ghanaians with a group stage elimination from last year’s Championship in South Africa as defending champions.
