AYC 2017: Black Satellites kicked out by Senegal

The Black Satellites of Ghana failed to qualify to the 20th edition of the 2017 Africa Youth Championship (AYC) by losing 2-3 on aggregate to their Senegalese counterparts.

Ghana scored just a goal courtesy a Charles Boateng’s strike in the first half at the Cape Coast Stadium but failed to overturn the 3-1 deficit in Dakar two weeks ago.

This failure becomes the first time since 2009, the U-20 couldn’t qualify for the Youth Tournament on the continent.

Coach Dramani, who has endeared himself to Ghanaian football fans after guiding the Black Maidens to a historic bronze finish at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Azerbaijan in 2012 coupled with two domestic league titles with Asante Kotoko refused to talk to the media after the game.

The seven winners of the second leg will join host Zambia for the final tournament of the 20th edition of the AYC scheduled for 26 February to 12 March 2017, where the semi-finalists will represent Africa at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in South Korea next May.
