African Games 2023: We are competing because we want to win – Yusif Basigi

Head coach of Ghana’s Female U-20, Yusif Basigi, says the target of the team is to win the gold medal at the end of the women’s football competition at the African Games.

The Black Princesses’ dream is shaping up perfectly after two wins in their opening two games in Group A which sees them advance to the semifinal with a game to spare.

Basigi’s side beat Ethiopia in their first game before coming from behind to defeat Tanzania at the Cape Coast Stadium on Tuesday night to maintain the top spot in the group.

Despite their winning run, the Black Princesses have not enjoyed the best of spells. Basigi says the team is gradually finding their rhythm.

“We want to win; that is why we are competing,” said Basigi when quizzed about his target at the end of the game. “We are on course. You may see the team not stable but we are on course.”

“We have a little bit of challenges but we are managing and I know we will find our rhythm. That is why in the first half you saw we were a bit shaky because when you don’t have the complement of the team and you keep changing this is what happens.

“As and when we progress then you will see that then you see we are coming up. So yes, the mission is still on course.”

Ghana is looking to reclaim the gold medal it won during the last two editions of the Games in 2015, where they were represented by the Black Queens.
