Ghana U20 Coach Karim Zito has reflected on his side’s 1-2 defeat to Gambia in the final group stage game in the ongoing 2021 CAF U20 African Cup of Nations.
Despite the loss, the Black Satellites finished as one of the third best placed teams after falling behind Morocco and Gambia in the Group C table.
While expressing his disappointment at his team’s inability to win the game., Coach Karim Zito admitted that his team lost to a better side.
“Like I said before the game, every team that plays Ghana comes into the game to fight hard for a win. We take nothing from Gambia, they came out to win the game and took advantage of their chances.”
“We didn’t get the result we wanted but qualification to the next round is key because we have another opportunity to correct our mistakes”, Coqch Zito stated at the post match press conference which was held at the Stade Municipal Nouadhibou after the game.
Ghana will face Cameroon in the first quarterfinal game on Thursday.
