Ghana U20 national team coach Sellas Tetteh believes the high level of competition in camp will help build a formidable team for the impending Fifa World Youth Championships.
The Black Satellites are scheduled to leave Accra for New Zealand on Thursday to participate in a four-nation tournament ahead of the World Cup in the same country.
Only 24 of the 35-man provisional squad have joined the team with the rest expected to join later in Auckland.
“There is competition in camp and that should be a platform for us to show improvement, progression and development,” he told Joy Sports.
“In a way we see it as a way of trying to build a very solid, formidable side that will represent the nation,” said the coach who is heading to a third World Cup at this level.
“At the moment we working very hard and besides that we are enjoying ourselves, trying to know each other, be close to each other , integrate and get along with each other.”
The Satellites played two friendly games at the Accra stadium on Tuesday. Their first game was against Westlanders FC which they won 1-0. Then they hammered Miracles FC 6-0.
Ghana, bronze winner in the last edition in 2013, is housed in Group B alongside Argentina, Panama and Austria in the World Cup which starts May 30.
