“I’ll always thank the FA for believing in me and calling me to come all the way from Denmark to take up the coaching of the team.

“From the first day that I came to Ghana, my aim has been to change the narrative: That means qualifying the team to the AFCON, an objective that has eluded us since 2017,” Coach Laryea Kingston said.

Up next for Coach Laryea Kingston and his Black Starlets side, they will take on Benin in their second Group A match at the WAFU Zone B U17 Cup of Nations tournament.
