Home - Starlets coach fumes after crisis meeting

Ghana coach David Duncan has expressed some reservations over a crisis meeting held last Tuesday between the technical team and some GFA officials in Peru.

Duncan and his assistants held a behind closed doors meeting with ex-GFA chairman Ben Koufie and the head of the Starlets management committee Fred Crentsil after Ghana's uninspiring 1-1 draw with Costa Rica.

But coach David Duncan told Joy Sports that he feels disconcerted by the unwarranted interference in technical matters from the administrative officials.

However the Black Starlets coach remains confident that Ghana would beat China tonight to qualify for the quarterfinals of the World under 17 cup in Peru.

The Ghanaians take on the Chinese in a make or break encounter knowing that nothing short of victory will propel them to the next stage of the competition.

The Starlets two consecutive draws in the opening round of matches has left them under tremendous pressure to produce a win tonight.

But with China needing only a point from today's clash to advance, Starlets coach David Duncan reckons his team will be up against it.

He told Joy sports that, despite the seeming arduous nature of the task ahead his team will triumph.
