Yusif Basigi: Black Princesses Head Coach Calls for Support from Cape Coast

Head coach of the Black Princesses of Ghana, Yusif Basigi has called on people of Cape Coast to replicate same support that was thrown behind the WAFU 2017 winners, Black Stars B, for Ghana’s U-20 as they play Algeria’s U-20 team on Sunday at the Cape Coast Stadium.

The Black Princesses wrapped up a five star performance against the Algerians at Algiers, winning by 0:5 last week and will be hosting the return encounter on Sunday, October 1 at the Cape Coast Stadium.

After a successful training section on Wednesday at the newly constructed 15,000 capacitor stadium, head coach of the side, Yusif Basigi pleaded on people of Cape Coast to do exactly what helped to the magnificent performance of the Black Stars B team against the Home Based side of Nigeria in the WAFU 2017 Final.

The former Black Queens head coach said – “Cape Coast are known for their support, we saw that in the just ended WAFU tournament. I hope they will win the heart of the female teams too, Black Queens and Black Maidens will also push their matches here.”

Yusif Basigi who led the Black Queens to the historic Gold Medal in the 2015 All African Games, Maputo, Mozambique, claimed his side will not be complacent ahead of the second leg, but will approach the game with all seriousness.

“We are looking beyond this particular game, there’s Kenya/Ethiopia if we qualify, am going to field a strong side against the Algerians.”

The Black Princesses are aiming to make it to the 2018 FIFA U-20 World Cup to be hosted by France.
