Black Satellites aim for world best again

Date: 22-Feb-2012












Ghana's U20 side are keen on becoming world champions again three years after winning the Fifa U-20 World Cup.

The Black Satellites won a hat-trick of titles including the U-20 Africa and World Cups both in 2009 but failed to reproduce the same feat last year when they even failed to qualify for the World stage.

Orlando Wellington's side have been camping ahead of the start of the qualifiers for the 2013 Africa Youth Championship with the hope of rediscovering the same form shown by the generation of players in 2009.

The team's build up will include their participation in a high-profile friendly tournament in South Africa later this year which will also include tough South American giants Brazil and Argentina.

Chairman of the Black Satellites' management member George Afriyie believes the move by the Ghana Football Association to get them to play in high profile friendlies will put the team a good stead.

"We are putting together a comprehensive plan to ensure that what happened to the [Black] Satellites last year doesn't happen again," George Afriyie told Ghana Football, the official newspaper of the GFA.

"The first step is to give the Satellites the chance to play tough opponents and give them the adequate preparation needed to ensure that they qualify for the World Cup and excel.

"The tournament in South Africa will give the players the chance to face tough opponents like Brazil, Argentina, Nigeria and Japan who are tough customers as far as youth football in concerned.

"This is the first step by the GFA and very soon we will be unveiling our comprehensive plans for the future."

Asian giants Japan, as well as Egypt, Nigeria, Cameroon and the host nation will play in the competition to be held in Cape Town.

Satellites hit four past Unity Star FC in friendly
Posted On Thursday, 19th April 2012

Ghana Under-20 beat Unity Star FC 4-0 in a routine friendly match at the Tema Park on Thursday morning.

Talented midfielder Nasiru Mohammed grabbed a brace and Frank Sarfo Gyamfi and Fatau Salifu scored a goal each.

The Black Satellites dominated play in both halves exhibiting great exuberant and well rehearsed play.

Unity Star FC from Kasoa provided them the requisite test for Orlando Wellington’s troops.

Ghana are fine-tuning preparations for next month’s invitational tournament in South Africa.

Starlets thrash Satellites 3-0 in May 9 Anniversary match

The national U-17 team, the Black Starlets gave their senior colleagues the Black Satellites (U-20) a sound beating thanks to a 3-0 victory in a May 9 Stadium Disaster Anniversary match on Wednesday at the Accra Sports Stadium.

An improved second half performance from the Starlets saw them overpower the uninspiring Satellites side with three well-taken goals, giving coach Orlando Wellington enough cause to worry with less than two months to their 2013 CAF African Youth Championship qualifier against Uganda in Kampala.

The match, which climaxed the 11th anniversary of the May 9 Stadium Disaster celebrations lived up to its billing, with the twinkle twinkle Starlets teaching their seniors some bitter football lessons.

The Satellites squad dominated by some of the best performers in the ongoing 2011/2012 Glo Premier League, appeared weary, lacked cohesion and could only rob the Starlets off the ball with their physical challenges.

The Starlets were however a delight to watch with a performance that whetted the appetite of the young crowd, and looked poised to face the Baby Scorpions of Gambia in the first round of the qualifiers of the CAF U-17 Championship in October.

After a barren first half, the Starlets managed by Samuel Fabin took charge of the game with captain Osei Barnes and Emmanuel Gyamfi leading onslaughts into the half of their opponents.

On 57 minutes, Nafiu Dramani headed in the opener from James Akaminko’s cross from the flanks with the Satellites defence and goalkeeper stranded in wonderland.

Six minutes later, Gyamfi doubled the lead with yet another beautiful header before Barnes scored the third goal on 68 minutes with a superb shot that left goalkeeper Felix Annang of Asante Kotoko fame with no option with Gyamfi providing the assist.

Keeper Annang was pulled out later for Muntari Tagoe after the third goal but it was still the Starlets who remained in control of proceedings.

In the dying embers of the game, Starlets goalkeeper Owusu Da Costa, pulled up a superb save off Benjamin Agbeko’s thunderbolt to the amazement of the fans. It was the last chance for the Satellites and incidentally their best in the second half to end up an exciting evening in honour of the fallen football fans.**
