France-born Ghanaian youngster Kevin Osei is backing the Black Satellites to progress to the finals of this yearâ€™s FIFA U20 World Cup at the expense of France.
The two teams will go at each in Wednesdayâ€™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.
â€œI have watched the game and I have been impressed with the performance of the team,â€ Osei told Happy FM
â€œIâ€™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 Iâ€™m very happy for them.
â€œThey (Black Satellites) play with their heart out and I believe they can do something for our country.â€
â€œYes, I was born in France but Iâ€™m a Ghanaian. My family is Ghanaian. My heart is Ghanaian and so I want Ghana to win.â€
Osei was part of the initial squad called up for the Â 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.
