Ghana coach Sellas Tetteh dejected with defeat to Mali

Ghana U-20 coach Sellas Tetteh believes numerous costly errors ended his side’s World Cup campaign in New Zealand.
Tetteh, who led the Black Satellites to win the 2009 tournament in Egypt, saw his charges being outclassed by a mature Les Aigles side who thumped them 3-0 in Wellington.
The former Rwanda national team coach also admitted his side were “bridesmaids” on the afternoon as Mali showed more conviction and belief.
“First of all I’d like to congratulate my fellow coach from Mali and his team, who deserved their place in the quarter-finals today, but of course I’m also extremely disappointed,” Tetteh said in a post-match interview.
“We simply didn’t settle into our game, and in the last third in particular we just lacked ideas and creativity. We also made too many unnecessary mistakes in our build-up play, and our opponents severely punished us for that. Mali were the better team today.
“You’re always going to lose a match where every 50/50 ball lands at the feet of your opposition”.
