Black Starlets winger Joseph Narbi is confident the team will be ready for their final Group A game against Benin at the ongoing 2024 WAFU U17 Cup of Nations in Accra.

The Ghana U17 national team will face their neighbours next week Tuesday, May 21 at the University of Ghana Sports Stadium.

Ghana kicked off their campaign with a remarkable 5-1 triumph over Ivory Coast at the University of Ghana Stadium in Legon, with Narbi shining brightly by netting two exceptional goals.

Godfred Sarpong, Harve Gbafa, and Mark Kagawa Mensah all scored in the resounding victory, positioning Ghana strongly for qualification to the semi-finals. Narbi was named man of the match in the game.

“We know Ivory Coast is a stronger side but we respect the other teams. We go into every game with the mentality of winning, so we will be ready for Benin,” said the young sensation after the match.

“The message I have for Ghanaians is that I promise them that we will win the trophy for them so they will be happy for us to also be happy,” he added.
