Kevin Osei backs Ghana's Under-20 to beat France on Wednesday

France-born Ghanaian youngster Kevin Osei is backing the Black Satellites to progress to the finals of this year’s FIFA U20 World Cup at the expense of France.

The two teams will go at each in Wednesday’s first semi-final game at the Bursa Ataturk Stadyumu in Bursa.

Revenge will be key on the minds of the Ghanaians after losing 3-1 to the Little Blues during their opening group A game at the Istanbul Arena.

But the West African side have improved tremendously since and now find themselves in a position to potentially win their second World title.

They are once again confronted with a solid French side which battered Uzbekistan 4-0 during their quarter-final clash.

Osei, currently on loan at Aviron Bayonnais from Olympique Marseille is confident the Black Satellites will come to the party.

“I have watched the game and I have been impressed with the performance of the team,” Osei told Happy FM

“I’m very happy with their progress so far. I know some of the players in the team. I know Richmond Nketiah and Richmond Boakye-Yiadom and I’m very happy for them.

“They (Black Satellites) play with their heart out and I believe they can do something for our country.”

“Yes, I was born in France but I’m a Ghanaian. My family is Ghanaian. My heart is Ghanaian and so I want Ghana to win.”

Osei was part of the initial squad called up for the  2011 edition of the African Youth Championship in South Africa but delay in securing his Ghanaian passport scuppered his dream of playing for the team.
