Ghana U-20 winger Frank Arhin say the team's primary objective is to qualify for the FIFA U-20 World Cup ahead of the start of the Africa Youth Championship this weekend.
The Black Satellites are in Niger for this year's edition of the AYC, which serves as a qualification tournament for the World Cup in Poland later this year.
The team has had a poor run of friendly results during preparation, but Arhin- one of the players to watch- says they are unfazed by the bad results in the preparatory games and are at the competition to qualify for the World Cup.
“Our preparatory matches were not all that best as it expected but looking at our last match there was improvement,” he told Kumasi-based Agyenkwa FM Sports.
“Ghanaians should believe us and we are determined to qualify from the group and make it to the World Cup.
“We are training hard and listening to the coaches instructions and I believe we will come back home with something.”
The Ostersunds midfielder has called on Ghanaians to show them the needed support as they seek to make the country proud.
“Ghanaians should support us with prayers and need not to lose hope in us because we are really working hard and focused to make the nation proud as it happened years ago.”
Ghana will play Burkina Faso in their first game at the tournament.
