The Ghana’s male volleyball team, the Young Spikers has set their sight on gold at the second edition of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Games underway in Accra.
Ghana toppled Cote d’Ivoire 3-0 at their quarter final meeting at the Accra Sports Stadium on Tuesday to pick one of the four slots for the semis and Captain Paul Akan says the dream for the ultimate is on.
He said, “We are poised for the gold medal. The last two months, we have prepared for this moment and with God on our side, we should be set to emerge victors”.
Ghana meets Togo at the last four and Akan is convinced they will come good in the duel they must win to book that dream final.
The Captain said, “Preparing the last eight weeks in Winneba helped build our focus and concentration which were key to our game and victory over the Ivorians today.”
Coach Justice Adjaso however says his charges will require mental fortitude in the duel with Togo if they are to make any appearance in the finals.
“We have won all our games so far and winning against Togo in the next game will demand a strong defense system and fine attitude every step along the way.”
The competition which has brought 11 countries on the sub region together ends on Friday, June 22.
