Black Starlets Brace For Cameroonian Challenge

BLACK Starlets head Coach; Paa Kwesi Fabin has called for his side to fight to the death when they face Cameroon next Sunday in Yaoundé.

The Black Starlets are currently camped in Prampram preparing for the final qualifier against Cameroon which will be played on Sunday 14th September 2014.

The return fixture would also take place between 26 and 28 September 2014 at Accra.

Fabin says his team has the chance to make it a memorable double over Cameroon starting with next Sunday’s encounter.

He says, Cameroon will face a Ghana side motivated by the prospective of winning to qualify for the African Youth Championships.

He believes the Starlets will be the underdogs because they will be playing away from home but has insisted that the kind of mentality his team will take into the Sunday game will see them return victorious.

“We have to be super-concentrated (to beat Cameroon),” Paa Kwesi said.

“They are a good football nation and their squad is good so it will be very, very, very difficult to play against them but we know what to do to give us victory. It will be a very tight match where we will have to fight as if it were the last game of our lives”.

“They (Cameroon) are the favourites because they will play home and in front of their fans but we will play with our humility, our heart and our will and not have fear for them or for the crowd. We are going to Cameroon to win and nothing else”.


Meanwhile,Ghana’s senior female team – the Black Queens are in Japan ahead of a double-header international friendlies with the Asian giants.

Yussif Basigi’s ladies will play their first game of the two installments yesterday Monday morning before playing them again tomorrow morning, Ghana time.

The Ghana Football Association secured the friendly for the team to use as preparations for their upcoming TN Mobile 9th African Women Championship in Namibia.

Ghana’s coach Basigi is keen to put his side into shape before the tournament and believes the Asians will offer him the best chance to assess the progress of his side.
