Black Satellites coach Abdul Karim Zito says reaching the last four of the 2021 CAF U20 Cup of Nations has garnished his résumé.

The ex-Ghana defender and his charges beat Cameroon 4-2 on penalties on Thursday after drawing 1-1 after extra-time to advance to the semi-final of the competition in Mauritania.

Goalkeeper Danlad Ibrahim saved one penalty while Cameroon's fourth spot-kick by  Goni Ali  smashed the crossbar.

''I am very proud of the boys and also proud of myself for qualifying,'' Zito said in his post-match speech

''But before I go deep into your question, I want to take this opportunity to thank my fellow coaches at home who never stopped trusting in me; giving me all sort of encouragement that we can make it and truly to their words, we have made it and I can say we have qualified for the World Cup.

''And this is a big achievement for me and the boys themselves too.''
