Third place playoff match against Nigeria big opportunity for me – Black Starlets assistant coach Nana Kwaku Agyemang

Assistant Black Starlets coach Nana Kwaku Agyemang says he is ready to seize the moment as he steps up to lead the team in the WAFU B U17 Cup of Nations third-place playoff clash against Nigeria.

The match will be played at the University of Ghana Sports Stadium.

This follows the resignation of head coach Laryea Kingston, who made the decision after the team’s 2-1 defeat to Burkina Faso in the semi-finals.

Kingston, who guided the team to impressive victories with scores of 5-1 and 2-0, expressed his disappointment and stated that his resignation was a carefully considered choice.

Now, it’s up to Agyemang to take charge in what could be a pivotal moment in his coaching career.

“It’s extremely important. I mean it’s my first national assignment. At first, being the assistant to Laryea Kingston and now taking the reins for this last game I think it’s very very important.

“For me, it really defines my coaching career and I am going to do everything possible to win this to put smiles back on the faces of Ghanaians and also to be able to uplift my own self as a coach.”

The match is scheduled for 4 pm local time, with Ghana aiming to secure third place and maintain their hopes for an AFCON return.
