Black Satellites head coach Jimmy Cobblah has revealed that his halftime 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 29th minutes.

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

“I told them we are just down, we are not out, so we should go there and come and play."
