Ebony FC and Black Satellites wideman Emmanuel Agyemang Duah has disclosed categorically clear that, their main target from day one is to secure final ticket to the 2021 FIFA U20 World Cup which will be staged in Indonesia.


The Black Satellites just a week ago conquered WAFU Zone B after beating the Young Stallions of Burkina Faso 2-1 in the final to clinch the Championship which was hosted in Porto-Novo, Benin

The 17-year-old offered great piece of his skill set to augment the efforts of the Ghanaian attack notably in games against Flying Eagles of Nigeria and the Young Elephants of Cote D'Ivoire.
The speedster stated that has been their main aim when they were in camp preparing for the WAFU Championship and also indicated they heard most Ghanaians writing them off but they still remain determined and ready to secure a place in Indonesia.
"Our target going into the WAFU was to qualify for the U20 AFCON and bring the trophy home but our main focus right from day one is to secure qualification to the World Cup", he told Adam Nazir on Madiba Official on YouTube.
On how he was able to walk his way into the team despite meeting all these players, Duah narrated it wasn't easy at the beginning when you are coming to compete with all these players but the guidance and confidence from his coaches at Ebony FC kept him going.
"I was in the first batch so it wasn't easy and besides that was my first national team call up. All I needed then was confidence to keep me moving and my coaches did that."
"In the beginning it was difficult but after a week or two, I gathered my pieces. Going forward when Coach Karim Zito identified the potentials in me, he also helped me a lot to settle well in the team."
On the tournament itself, the Ebony FC winger stated their most difficult game was their opening game against Nigeria since that game contained lots of pressure due to the football rivalry and tension that exist between the two nations.
"Most difficult game? I will choose the game against Nigeria. The thing is, any Ghana play Nigeria, is always like a war regardless the level being it at senior or youth. It is always a tough game. I was at the bench although but I could still feel the heat even before I came on", he concluded.
Emmanuel Agyemang Duah 17, attacker has stated playing in the Ghanaian topflight will be a plus but his main aim is to make it to the highest level most especially playing in all the top European club competitions.
Also, he insisted that the Black Satellites will give all what they could in the upcoming U20 AFCON to book a place for themselves in Jakarta for the World Cup.
