After 75 minutes of play, Ghana was punished for their missed chances when substitute Ayo Akinola scored for the USA.

Black Starlets head coach Paa Kwesi Fabin is hopeful of a win in their second group game of the U-17 FIFA World Cup against the United States of America today.

Colombia put more men upfront in search of an equaliser, but Ghana were able to stitch some unsafe moves at the counter. The U.S. seized the upper hand after the opening 10 minutes, carving out a host of opportunities that had the Ghana defense scrambling or forced goalkeeper Ibrahim Danlad into action.

He added: "We had more chances than they had especially in the first half and getting into the second half".

With Delhi being amongst the most polluted cities in the world, Restrepo was asked to comment on whether it has affected his team given that they have been in India for nearly two weeks.

Ghana first found the back of the net in the 28th minute but it was whistled offside but soon in the 39th minute, Ghana went forth on a counter-attack and captain Eric Ayiah showed his brilliance.

Midfielder Thomas Gutierrez, seated beside his coach, emphasised that the entire team was focused on their opening match here, and not the senior team's World Cup qualification campaign, where they face a tough home game against Paraguay later tonight. We are looking forward to playing a good game.

Mier was forced to make another save a couple of minutes later when he kept out Mohammed Aminu's shot at his near post.

The Black Starlets could not reproduce the kind of performance that saw them beating Columbia in their first game.
