The Black Starlets made another huge statement with an empathetic victory over Young Syli National in a friendly

Ghana U17 side humiliated their Guinean counterpart 6-1 in an international friendly in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday, ahead of the Fifa U17 World Cup holding in India next month.

The Black Starlets, who began their fine tuning in the Middle East with a 2-1 defeat to African champions Mali, crushed Guinea to make it 10 goals scored in their last two games following a 4-0 victory over United Arab Emirates last week.

Fabien benched captain Eric Eyiah and started with Aminu Mohammed and Kudus Mohammed upfront, with 14-year-old goalkeeper Ibrahim Danlad of Asante Kotoko in the post.

After a pulsating opening 15 minutes without a goal, Leveh Gabriel connected a pass to open the scoring for Ghana.

Aminu, who was wasteful upfront in the opening moments of the game, made it 2-0 by the 23rd minute before adding another goal on 35th minute.

Emmanuel Toku added his name to the scoresheet with a fine finish five minutes away from the break.

In the second half, Aminu wasted a glorious opportunity to add to his tally after being played through by a teammate but he made amends by the 53rd minute.

Goal understands that Ghana are in search for a final friendly before they depart Abu Dhabi on October 2. They are in Group A with hosts India, United States and Colombia.
