Desmond Ofei heaps praises on Black Satellites for mentality in Senegal win

Black Satellites coach Desmond Ofei has heaped praises on his players for their mentality following their hard fought win over Senegal in the semi-final of the African Games Men’s football competition.

Ghana dug deep to beat Senegal 1-0 at the Accra Sports stadium to book a place in Friday’s final against Uganda.

‘’The final is for the players. For us coaches, the training is for us and the match is for the players. We guide them in the game, motivate them and give them the right inspiration to perform’’ Desmond Ofei said in a post-match interview.

‘’We started camping on time and got to touch on every facet of the game. The boys are well-prepared for this tournament and they keep growing. Their mentality is incredible; they are very hungry and very humble despite the quality we have in the team’’.

‘’A final is a final and we are going to enjoy it. For us, it’s a final and we are going to fight. Uganda is a very good team, we have to respect them. I saw them play and their movements with and without the ball is incredible. But we will prepare again and we know them. They have good individual players and we know their weaknesses. We will use our qualities and fight to the end. In the end we will see what happens’’ he added.

The Black Satellites started the tournament with a goalless draw against Congo before beating The Gambia and Benin in the other group A games. The win over Senegal is their third straight victory in the tournament.
