Black Satellites manager Karim Zito unveiled the strategy he and his team will adopt before taking on Nigeria (Wednesday) in the WAFU-U20 championship that is going on in Porto-Novo, Benin.

Ghana is placed in the group B alongside Nigeria and Ivory who drew their first game 1-1.

The Black Satellites who will start the competition on Wednesday, December 9, have a special strategy to face the Flying Eagles.

“Nigeria and Cote D’Ivoire are not countries that we will look down upon,” Karim Zito told Footballmadeinghana.

“We are going to watch them play, myself and all the players we will sit in one place and after the match, we’ll come together to discuss what we saw, what we feel we should do,” he continued.

“At the end of the day we will watch their weaknesses, and their strategy and where they start their buildup from…both teams [Nigeria and Cote D’Ivoire].

“I will divide the team into two, some will watch Nigeria and the other will watch Cote D’Ivoire and I will watch both. And then we will put our heads together and strategize for our match against Nigeria,” the manager concluded.
