Black Satellites camp in Tamale ahead of crucial Uganda game

The 2009 World Youth Champions will have to overturn a 3-1 deficit in order to advance to the final round of qualifying for the 2013 Africa Youth Championship
Twenty-three players of the Black Satellites leave Accra to Tamale on Wednesday as the Under-20 team prepare for the 2013 Africa Youth Championship qualifier against Uganda.

The Black Satellites suffered a 3-1 away defeat in Nakivubo last Saturday and before they can progress to the final round of qualifying, they will have to overturn that result in the second leg in Ghana come next week.

Maxwell Konadu has served notice his charges are poised to upend that deficit with total home support. The Black Satellites are expected to begin preparations right upon arrival for the decisive second leg match against the Hippos.

The 2009 Africa and world champions will play the reverse clash at the Tamale Stadium on August 11, 2012 with the winner over both legs meeting either Morocco or the Gambia.
