Ghana’s Male U-17 Head Coach Ben Forkuo has outlined the significance of his side playing friendly games with Morocco.
The Black Starlets are currently in the North African country where they are set to face their Moroccan counterparts in a two legged friendly affair.
The first game took place on Monday, with Ghana suffering a 2-1 defeat.
Speaking after the game, Ben Forkuo said “I am not worried about the score line. At this stage results don’t matter in these kinds of situations.
“We are looking ahead to the future, player development, team performance, exposure, technical ability and all other ingredients that are needed to make the team better in future,” he added.
Ben Forkuo believes the exposure the game will give his players is worth more than winning.
“The players needed this tour badly to get exposed to playing abroad and that was the purpose of coming here and its been well achieved here in Morocco,” he said.
Ghana will play the Moroccans again on Thursday, February 11, 2021 before returning home on Saturday, February 13, 2021.
