Ghana U17 coach Samuel Paa Kwesi Fabin says his side could have scored more goals against host nation India in Thursday's final Group A clash at the ongoing FIFA U17 World Cup despite scoring four.

The Starlets humiliated host nation India with a 4-0 drubbing with skipper Eric Ayiah scoring twice while Toku and Danso finished off in a grand style.

Despite Paa Kwesi Fabin being satisfied with his team, he says his side could have scored more.

“We could have scored more, but I’m happy with the scoreline,” said Fabin in the post-match press conference.

He further added that India weren’t quite as competitive as they could have been. Perhaps he expected a stronger Indian side.

“I don’t think India posed any threat today. They didn’t come to the party like the previous matches but I don’t know why.”

Despite being infants in football at the world stage compared to Ghana, Fabin hailed India for the massive sports infrastructure development.

“I think India is ahead of us in playing fields and infrastructure.”

Ghana have qualified to the round of 16 of the ongoing competition and will be hoping to make a semi final appearance.
