Lome, March 21, GNA – Black Starlets coach, Fred Osam Duodo says his sight is set on the World U-17 Championship billed for the Republic of Korea later in the year after the Ghanaians failed to make it to the finals of the continental competition.

The Korean event will be the coach’s second in succession at that stage when he led the Gambians at the last edition and says his dream will be to produce a result that will make the continent proud.

Coach Duodo told the GNA Sports that his mind is now preoccupied with to mould an all round team that will take the world by storm at the global summit.

The Starlets are now to compete for the bronze against Tunisia on Sunday after losing 1-2 to Togo at the semi-final stage of the competition.

Coach Duodo will come face to face with at least taking a medal home when he parades his boys against Tunisia in search of a bronze medal on Sunday.

He told the GNA Sports that his desire is to at least pluck the bronze medal and travel to the world cup this summer as the third force on the continent.

Coach Doudo said he will revamp the team ahead of the World Cup in his quest to dazzle the world in the competition which Ghana won in 1991 and 1995.

“Thankfully we have about five months to prepare and I will make the most out of every single day towards my dream of improving on this side”.

He mentioned goalkeeping among the crucial areas he will be looking at.
The former Gambian coach told the GNA Sports that improving on the aggressiveness and stamina of the boys will be another area of concern.
“Like you rightly said, the team lacks enough fire up it’s belly so I’m going inculcate that aspect as well in them”.

The coach is thinking of introducing a few new faces into the team to enable him get the very best.
