Ghana U20 coach Wellington positive on semis slot at AYC 4/23/2011
Ghana Under-20 coach Orlando Wellington is refusing to give up on his team’s chances of booking a World Cup slot despite going winless in two matches at the African championships.

The defending champions are on the brink of an early exit after being held to a 1-1 draw by Gambia, Thursday afternoon.

But Wellington, who looked dejected after dropping points, is hanging on to his side’s slim hopes of survival.

“We are disappointed by the results. I told you coming into this game that Gambia will not be a push over. With ten men they succeeded in having a draw against us. However we still have a chance to qualify,”Wellington told cafonline.com

“All is not yet lost. We still have a game at hand and there is still a chance to qualify for the World cup.”

The Berekum Chelsea coach says his troops must keep their noses to the grindstone and edge Group leaders Cameroon and hope the other match goes their way to progress.

“Cameroon is not an easy team but we will work hard to beat them so as to qualify for the semis. I just regret today’s results but as a coach I have to be strong.”

Ghana are at the foot of the Group B table with one point from two rounds of matches.
