Black Satellites’ right-back Richmond Nketiah has assured Ghanaians that they would do everything possible to win a fourth Africa Youth Championship title for the nation.

The Black Satellites defeated Mali on penalties on Tuesday, 26th March, 2013 to reach the final in Algeria after drawing goalless in extra time.

Ghana won the penalties 4-2 after goalkeeper Isaac Ofori Antwi pulled two fantastic saves.

The Ghanaians will meet Egypt in the final on Saturday 30th March 2013, after the north Africans beat Nigeria in the other semi-final clash.


The clash with Egypt will be the second between both sides at the Championship after Sellas Tetteh's side, lost 2-1 in their opening match against the young Pharaohs.

But right-back Nketiah who expertly converted the fifth kick to send Ghana into the final says they are ready to make Ghana proud.

“We know that if we fight hard we can make it… we are committed and focused and I think we can make it,” the Medeama SC defender said.
