Ghana coach keen to keep up winning run

Augustine Adotey is eager for Ghana to maintain its momentum against Canada on Saturday at the U-17 FIFA Women's World Cup.

The Black Maidens lead the charge into the last eight in Group B as their other competitors, Germany, Korea DPR and Canada all head into the final day matches looking for crucial wins that can help them join Ghana in the quarter-finals.

After wins against Germany and Korea, Ghana have put together an unbeaten run that Adotey hopes to preserve when his side meets Canada in Tibas at 5:00pm local time [23:00GMT].

Canada have two points while the other two sides have a point apiece.

Despite sealing qualification for the next phase, there is no stopping for the Black Maidens coach.

"My vision is to make sure I retain the top spot," Adotey said.

"We've qualified already. Six points is enough and I need a draw just to make sure I am intact but irrespective of that I am not looking for a draw."

Adotey wants the Black Maidens to continue with their winning run as he promises that his team will be very competitive.

"I want to have a hundred percent record," the Ghana coach said on Thursday.

"It's an all-out game against Canada. I want to claim the maximum points and keep a clean sheet. My major target is the knockout stage."

"We are not going to consider any team, not even Canada. I want to win as well."
