WAFU U-17 Zone B final: Black Starlets handed massive boost ahead of Nigeria clash

Black Starlets have been handed a massive boost ahead of their WAFU U17 Zone B final against Nigeria as defender Abdul Samed declares himself fit for the Saturday's clash.

Samed's arm was heavily strapped after Ghana’s epic 2-1 win over Ivory Coast in the first semi-final clash on Wednesday.

The Dreams FC defender has played every single minute of Ghana’s campaign at the tournament being staged in Niger to emphasize his importance to the side.

Losing him ahead of the final match against rivals Nigeria will thus deal a heavy blow to coach Karim Zito.

But the left-back says he is well enough to play on Sunday.

“I felt some pains in my arm but this morning the pain is no more,” he told FootballmadeinGhana.com.

“I think if it continues like this, I will be ready to play in the final.”

The winner of the final match on Sunday will qualify to play at next year’s Africa U17 Championships to be hosted by Tanzania.
