Paa Kwesi Fabin, coach of the Ghanaian U-17 has confessed that his side were outplayed by the Flying Eaglets from Nigeria after they lost 6-1 in their opening game of the CAF U-17 Championship.
“Nigeria surprised us tonight, they were far better than we had expected and outplayed us. We did not see this heavy defeat coming at all and not only were the Nigerians good but they were stronger too.“
The Ghanaians will now be hoping to get their competition back on track, when they face Congo in their second game.
“We have to regroup and try to salvage our campaign to reach semi-finals but now we can only look ahead to one game at a time,” he said.
“So we need to have a look at how we approached this game because our tactics and set–up did not work today.
“Our focus shifts to the next game against Congo and not the one beyond that and little by little we see if we can recover from today’s set back.”
