Black Satellites coach, Karim Zito, believes his side’s progression into the semi-finals of the on-going Africa Cup of Nations is a big achievement for him and all coaches in Ghana.
The Satellites emerged 4-2 winners during the penalty shoot outs after the game ended 1-1 after 120 minutes of football.
Ghana qualified to the quarterfinals stage as one of the best third-placed teams after a 4-0 win over Tanzania, drawing against Morocco and losing the final group game to Gambia.
This is a big achievement for me and for the all Coaches in Ghana”, Coach Zito said at the post match press conference.
“I reminded them that this tournament is about them and their future as footballers.
He added, “I also told them most importantly they have to think about Ghana and die for the country.”
For now we are waiting to know our opponents for the semi-finals then we roll out our plan for that match.”
Ghana will face the winner of the game between Gambia and Central Africa Republic on Monday for a place in the final match which will be played next weekend.
