U17 WAFU: Why We Lost To Nigeria – Ghana Coach


The assistant coach of the Black Starlets of Ghana Nana Kweku Agymang has opened up on the reason his team lost to Nigeria.

The Ghanaian side suffered a 2-3 defeat to the Golden Eaglets of Nigeria despite leading the game at some point.

“Throughout the tournament, we had weaknesses with the centre-backs; both centre-backs we had difficulties.’

“If you take the second goal, for example, we’ve taught them to protect the middle of the penalty area which includes the other fullback. In this case, you saw both centre-backs moving out of those areas to try and protect the areas that the midfielders were supposed to.

“So preparatory mistakes cost us in terms of the way we defended against Nigeria,” he added.
