Black Starlets coach Karim Zito has named a 20-man squad for the upcoming U-17 seven-nation zonal qualifying competition in Niger.
The tournament which is set to commence from September 2 to 15, 2018, will see the winner book their ticket to represent WAFU Zone B at next year’s AFCON in Tanzania.
The Black Starlets have been pitted in Group A alongside neighbours Togo and hosts Niger.
The former Dreams FC trainer is having to do without three key players – Emmanuel Bio (Cheetah FC), Adams Saad (Still Believe FC) and Godwin Bentil (Attram De Visser Soccer Academy) – after independent MRI tests proved they were older than the required age limit.
The team will depart from Accra to Niamey on Thursday afternoon.
