Ghana coach Paa Kwasi Fabin is confident his revamped Black Starlets team can deliver the Under-17 World Cup title.
The tournament, to be hosted by India, is slated for October 6-28, 2017.
Coach Fabin experienced trainer has had the opportunity to further strengthen his team since leading Ghana to silver at the Africa Cup of Nations a couple of months ago.
Speaking ahead of the team’s final leg of preparations for the World Cup, the trainer said:
“The last time we went to Africa, I said we wanted to get qualification but this time, we are aiming at winning the trophy.
“And I think we have the boys to do that.”
The coach also highlighted on the need for the team to be stocked with adequate medicines in order to keep his charges in shape throughout the competition.
“During the Afcon, it got to a point where we needed to even beg the players to go and play because they were down with malaria – about 8 of them.
“…I spoke to the [Sports] Minister about drugs to be able to cater for all these boys even before we leave for India so that that thing will not reoccur.
The Black Starlets will face Colombia in the opening match of the World Cup tournament.
