Ghana Black satellites to face Argentina [ U20 World Cup Groups in full]
The Black Satellites of Ghana will have to battle it out with Austria, Argentina and Panama at the 2015 FIFA Under-20 World Cup in New Zealand after finishing third at the African youth championship in Senegal.
Ghana black satellites who won the 2009 FIFA under-20 world cup in Egypt will first play against Austria on May 30 at the Wellington Regional Stadium before facing Argentina three days time.
The two former champions (Ghana and Argentina) are both seen as group favorites, and the result could end up determining who actually settles for the top spot in Group B.
Each of the semi-finalists at the just ended African Youth Championship discovered their World Cup opponents right after their final games.
Ghana were opened to either Group B or C depending on the outcome of Sunday’s third place play-off against Mali but settled for group B after they defeated Mali 3-1.
The 2015 FIFA Under-20 World Cup will be the 2oth edition of the Under-20 World Cup since its inception in 1977 as the FIFA World Youth Championship. The competition will take place for the first time in New Zealand after Australia staged it in 1981 and 1993 editions.
Argentina, though, have an enviable record, being the most successful team with six gold medals. En route to their triumph in 2001, they beat Ghana 3-0 in the grand finale.
The Satellites will travel to Auckland on June 5 to face off with Panama in their last group match.
Ghana won a bronze medal at the last edition in Turkey and also won Gold during the 2009 edition which was staged at Egypt.
