Ghana’s Black Satellites are ready for whatever Cameroon’s Young Cubs throw at them in the final of the 16th African Youth Championship on Sunday at Amahoro stadium, Kigali.

Ghana coach Sellas Tetteh said fans should expect a different game when they face Cameroon in the final.

“We are ready for the Young Cubs. We played each other in the group stage and we know each other very well.

“We are tactically ready for the challenge but this final will be very different from the group game,” Tetteh said. He added that Ghana would love to win but stressed that he must be careful when making predictions.

“We are doing well and my players are doing their best to record their third African Youth Championship title,” Tetteh added.

However, Cameroon Coach Alain Wabo is breathing fire after beating Nigeria 2-0 in the semi final said, “People should go and tell Ghana that they will have a very rough evening on Sunday. They have nowhere to escape to. They will have a bad outing that they will never forget.”

Wabo whose side survived a penalty and had to thank the woodwork against Nigeria also said that Ghana plays the same football like Nigeria and claimed to be the master to handle their tactics.

Wabo also commented on Nigeria’s loss saying that Nigeria has good skilful players but lack team work.

“I studied their games well and knew how to deal with them. And we did it. And the Ghana will be in for the worst than Nigeria,” Wabo threatened.

The Black Satellites sealed a place in the last two of the ongoing 16th African Youth Championship after 4-3 win over South Africa’s Amajita.

Both Ghana and Cameroon were in the same group and their only meeting ended one all.
