Ghana coach Yusif Basigi worried ahead of WAFU Cup final against Nigeria


Despite progressing to the final of the ongoing WAFU Zone B Women’s U-20 Cup of Nations, Black Princesses head coach Yusif Basigi is not satisfied with the productivity of his girls upfront.

Ghana advanced to the final after a dramatic comeback victory over Burkina Faso on Wednesday afternoon at the Baba Yara Stadium.

Ghana triumphed 3-1 over the Burkinabes courtesy of goals from skipper Stella Nyamekye, Success Ameyaa, and Faiza Seidu.

Prior to the semifinals, the team were 3-0 and 3-1 winners to Benin and Ivory Coast respectively.

However, Basigi expressed his dissatisfaction with the team’s wastefulness indicating that there could have been more goals in their matches to extend the win margins.

“It looks like the finishing is now the problem so it means that is the only area I have to work on even though I have a few lapses at the defence which I need to augment very well,” he said after the semifinal win.

“I think that is one of the reasons why because these are new players that many of them have not even played internationally before. It’s a matter of time, everything will be fine,” he added.

The Black Princesses will take on Nigeria in the grand finale after the Falconets defeated Benin 3-0 in the second semifinal game.

The match will kick off on Saturday, June 3, 2023.
