Ghana U-17 coach Paa Kwesi Fabin on Friday asserted that his team will play attacking football against USA on Monday to seal early qualification to the knockout round at the FIFA U17 World Cup.

Striker Sadiq Ibrahim scored the lone goal in the 39th minute at the Jawaharlal Nehru (JLN) stadium on Friday to help his side beat Colombia 1-0 in the tournament opener.

Another win will take them to the Round of 16 stage.

"Yea, we want to qualify with the second game, so we are going to go all out in the second game to get another 3 points to guarantee a place in the next stage," Fabin told reporters in the post-match press conference.

Commenting on the team's lone goal scorer of the evening, Fabin hailed Sadiq as one of the fastest players in his side.

"He (Sadiq) is one of the fastest players, we have monitored him," the 58-year-old said.

Fabin also heaped praise on his goalkeeper Danlad Ibrahim and the defence.

"Credit goes to my goalkeeper and the defence, they did tremendously well," Fabin said.
