Coach Paa Kwesi Fabin’s side will now have to beat India in order to qualify for the knockout rounds, and Sellas Tetteh believes the team should have no problem dispatching their Asian opponents.

Speaking as a pundit on KWESE TV, the former Ghana U-17 coach said: “We have done two matches now, unfortunately we lost, but all hope is not lost.

“What is important is that we won our first game which is a positive sign.

“Against India I believe without any doubt that the team will win, yes it is football and you can’t underrate anyone but I am sure we will pick maximum points and move on in the competition.”

The Black Starlets last played at the world cup in 2007, where they placed fourth, and the team will be hoping to go a step further in this year’s edition.
