Satellites’ coach, Sellas TettehCOACH Sellas Tetteh of the Black Satellites’ has admitted a “tough” match against Austria in the opening Group B match in the U-20 World Cup.
A stoppage-time penalty from Yaw Yeboah denied the Austrians the first big upset of New Zealand 2015, snatching Ghana a 1-1 draw from the jaws of defeat.
However, Tetteh was delighted his team managed to earn a point with an unimpressive performance.
“It was a very difficult game for us, but the first match in a tournament is always tough and it takes a while to find your rhythm,” the 2009 World Cup winner said in a post-match interview.
“Congratulations to Austria for a really strong performance; it was clear that this team has plenty of quality.
“Having said that, it didn’t surprise me as every side that qualifies for a World Cup has earned the right to be here.
“Everything is now open in our group after the first two games both ended in draws. Next up is a tricky match against Argentina, which we can hopefully win.”
Meanwhile,Black Satellite’s Yaw Yeboah has insisted that the team was well prepared for their opening match against Austria.
Ghana, tipped to overcome the Europeans in Group B second match, toiled to level the score line after conceding a 50th minute goal through Austria’s Bernd Gschweidl.
