The Black Satellites of Ghana need to show a different attitude if they are to beat Gambia today, says head coach Karim Zito.
Ghana’s Under-20 team will face Gambia at the ongoing Africa Youth Championships in Mauritania for a place in the final.
Having previously lost to Gambia by a lone goal in the group stage, Zito reckons, it will take something more than just ability, to win the tie.
“First and foremost, the character has to change. This stage is not the same as the one we last played. This is a stage which is more serious and if you don’t adapt and show the right attitude, you can’t survive,” Zito said in the pre match conference.
Ghana, who qualified for the semi-final after beating Cameroon 3-0 in a penalty shoot-out, will face a Gambian side that ruthlessly dispatched Central Africa Republic 3-0.
Zito says although he will field the same players, he expects a different attitude from them.
‘‘Definitely, the same players are going to play, but certain things will change and that depends on me and my players’’ he added.
Ghana’s semi-final tie with Gambia expected to kick off at 16:00 hours GMT at the Stade Olympique in Nouakchott.
