Black Starlets head coach, Paa Kwesi Fabin, says his side will be looking to get an early goal to calm nerves in their final group game in the FIFA under 17 World Cup against India later this afternoon.
The Starlets, who are making a return to the competition after a 10-year absence, lost their second group game against USA despite dominating large portions of the game leaving them with three points after the opening two matches.
A win for the Starlets will secure them a place in the Round of 16 of the tournament and Fabin says an early goal against the winless hosts will help compose his side in what is expected to be a difficult game.
“It’s a very crucial match because India wants to win to stay in contention and we also want to win to progress.
“Normally when you are playing against the host country the first goal is very important so we will try and get the first goal to help us calm down,” Fabin said.
The game kicks off at 2:30 PM Ghana time at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi.
