“No real strikers” – GFA Technical Director in brutal assessment of Black Starlets

Technical Director for the Ghana Football Association, Bernhard Lippert, has lamented the Black Starlets’ lack of competent goalscorers after the team crashed out of the 2020 Wafu-B Under-17 Cup of Nations.

The Black Starlets lost 3-1 in their second group game to Cote d’Ivoire to exit the competition, having already drawn 1-1 with Nigeria in their opening game of the 3-team group.

Lippert gave a damning assessment of the game afterward.

“I’m not happy with our performance. We slept in the first half-hour. We couldn’t play our match because we left too many spaces in the midfield,” he began.

“You saw in the second half also that we had a real problem scoring goals; we don’t have the kind of strikers who are real strikers.

“There’s a lot of work to do. This team today did not present itself as a team,” he concluded in an interview after the game.

Black Starlets’ early exit means Ghana will be missing the Under-17 Africa Cup of Nations for the successive edition.
