The Maidens left for Tunis last Wednesday full of optimism ahead of the second leg to be played tomorrow.
“In football, everything and anything is possible, but I don’t think we will allow the Tunisians to claw back and cancel all our seven goals.
That will be quite suicidal, “Coach Abrahams Allotey told Daily Graphic before the team left for Tunis.
“We are heading to Tunis with a mission, and that is to win again and book our place for Trinidad and Tobago. With the same focus and determination, I’m confident we will make it,” Coach Allotey, who masterminded the Maidens’ emphatic win two weeks ago, intimated.
He said the challenge of playing on an artificial turf notwithstanding, he was expecting his charges to go all out to ensure a double victory.
“We have trained on the artificial turf at Tema to give us a feel of the pitch we are going to play on. That, I believe, is enough. No matter what, we will prevail,” Coach Allotey maintained.
He was relieved that none of the Players who featured in the 7-0 demolition had any injuries and hinted he was unlikely to make changes in the starting line-up.
Just as the Maidens attempt to complete a double over the Tunisians, Nigeria will also try to do the same as they travel to face South Africa.
The Nigerians won 5-0 in Abuja a fortnight ago and are hopping to book their ticket to a successive U-17 WWC at the expense of the South Africans who had no antidote to the Nigerians who showed better quality play.
The losers in these two matches will meet in a play-off to determine who will meet in a play-off to determine who will pick the third ticket allotted to Africa for the tournament to be staged in September.
