Coach Sellas Tetteh, of the Black Satellites is relishing another qualification for the FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand as they prepare for the 19th edition of the African Youth Championship (AYC) which begins in March next year.
The former Black Stars assistant coach told the Graphic Sports in Accra last Monday that his utmost priority in the upcoming tournament was to make it to the semi-finals to gain an automatic qualification into the World Cup.
The Ghanaians have been drawn in Group B alongside Mali, Zambia and South Africa, and Tetteh believes his side is focused to make an impact on the tournament.
Sellas, who made history in 2009 when he won both the Africa Youth Championship and the World Cup, said: “We want to be the first to qualify for the World Cup so that is our main target.
“As for winning the title, when we achieve our major objective then we can think of that as well,” he added.
The Satellites, who placed third at the last edition of the competition, will begin their campaign against South Africa on March 9, 2015 before facing Zambia and Mali in subsequent games.
