Sellas blame players for semi exit



Ghana coach Sellas Tetteh has laid the blame for his country's exit in the Fifa u-20 World Cup at the doorsteps of his players. He says the lads let him down in the first half of the semi-final.

Against France, the Ghanaians were unable to take control in the first half in the game which ended 2-1.

"For me the whole team played poorly in the first half much against expectation and I do not want to single out any player for blame."

Substitute goalkeeper Michael Sai also came in for the injured regular Eric Antwi, and that was a problem.

"Of course, you will say the goalkeeper did poorly with the situation that resulted in the second goal for France, the question is what were the defenders doing at the time", he queried," he told Ghana's Daily Graphic newspaper.

Ghana had just a shot on target by the end of the first half to the physical strong France's 20.

"I hope we win the bronze to bring something home," he added.

The gaffer, who has once won the World Youth Championships in 2009, is aiming for a third placed medal against Iraq on Saturday. Tetteh was, however, quick to congratulate his boys for their resilience that saw them salvage what started as a failed campaign but managed to steer it to the semi-finals.
