Black Satellites head coach Jimmy Cobblah has revealed that his half time pep talk was crucial to his side's victory over Benin in the African U-20 Youth Qualifiers.

Black Satellites came from a goal down to brush side Benin 3-1 in the African U-20 Cup of Nations qualifier at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.

Benin were up by a goal to nil at half time courtesy Alllagbani Saliou with a fine finish in the 29 minute.

However, Black Satellites head coach claims it was his half time pep talk that inspired the team to victory.
