AFCON

Well Done, Black Satellites!

Over the weekend, the Black Satellites lifted the flag of Ghana very high as they clinched the 2021 African Cup of Nations U-20 trophy in Mauritania.


The satellites defeated a very compact and enterprising Uganda team in the finals by 2-0 to land the country's fourth U-20 AFCON title. The last time Ghana won the title was 2009 in Egypt where they conquered the world in the same year.


The Black Satellites of Ghana in the just ended AFCON held in Mauritania came up against strong oppositions like Tunisia, Tanzania, Gambia in the group stage, against Cameroon at the quarter final, against Gambia again in the semi final and then Uganda in the grand finale.


It was a joyous moment for the nation as the satellites crowned the country's independence day by winning the title. I wish the senior national team of Ghana, Black Stars replicate that in their quest for a continental trophy.

In fact Black Satellites went to Mauritania with nothing but came back with a trophy and medals. 


I think Coach Karim Zito and his lads have made Ghana proud and they deserve a reward from the government. But if this team could be maintained to the U-23 level and future, Ghana will rule Africa football for a long time.


Once again, well done Black Satellites of Ghana!
