And now, Black Satellites want nothing, but to clinch their fourth AFCON U20 trophy and coach Zito believes they can do so.

“They have an opportunity to make a name for themselves. They have an opportunity to write their names in Ghana’s history books. That should be their driving force when we go into the final,” the tactician told CAFonline.

“Things are going positively for us and we are playing according to our plan. We will try to go into the final and win. When we came here, our target was on the ultimate prize and now we are just one step away,”

“I trust in the players that they have that edge to do it. I have been with some of them from Under-15 and I am not just a coach to them but a father and a friend. We have walked together in this journey and we will do so to the end,” he added.
