Its exactly 11 years ago today when the Black Satellites of Ghana defeated their Brazilian counterpart 4-3 on penalties to clinch their first Under-20 World Cup hosted by Egypt.

The all-conquering Ghana team which had won the African Championship some months before travelling to Cairo was captained by Swansea City talisman Andre Dede Ayew and were powered to the finals against Brazil by eight-goal top scorer Dominic Adiyiah.

The 10-man Satellites who lost defender Daniel Addo in the 37th to a red card held on to edge-out the Brazilians who had the likes of Douglas Costa, Giuliano and Ganso in the ranks after the game ended 0-0 after 120 minutes.

Ghana’s team was headed by Coach Sellas Tetteh.
