Michael Ephson’s late strike was all Ghana needed to stay in contention for a gold medal at the tournament being held in Accra.

“The final is for them-the boys. In my opinion, the training is for us (coaches), the match is for the players. The job is done beforehand… the boys are well prepared for this tournament, they keep growing and their mentality is incredible,” said the coach after the game.

“They are very hungry, it’s a final we are going to enjoy it 100 percent,” he added.

In a difficult match in Accra, the Black Satellites weathered the storm and took their chance when it mattered.

“In the first half we didn’t create enough chances, not enough clear-cut chances, but we dug deep and eventually we got rewarded. My boys are not wasteful, we had one clear chance and we finished it. I can’t recall any part of the game where we squandered any chances,” he concluded. Credit:
