‘It’s big achievement for me’ – Black Satellites coach Karim Zito reacts to semis feat

Black Satellites coach Abdul Karim Zito says his overview was garnished by hitting the last four of the 2021 CAF U20 Cup of Nations.

On Thursday, after drawing 1-1 after overtime, the former Ghanaian defender and his charges defeated Cameroon 4-2 on penalties to progress to the Mauritania semi-final of the tournament.

Goalkeeper Danlad Ibrahim saved one penalty while Goni Ali’s fourth spot-kick from Cameroon destroyed the crossbar.

In his post-match speech, Zito said, “I’m very proud of the kids and also proud of myself for qualifying.”

I want to take this opportunity to thank my fellow coaches at home who have never stopped trusting me; to give me all sorts of motivation that we should do, and true to their words, we have done it and I can tell that we have qualified for the World Cup.

“And for me and the boys themselves, this is a major success, too.”
