Ghana FA President Kwasi Nyantakyi is backing the Black Satellites to eliminate Portugal at the FIFA U20 World Cup in Turkey.

The Satellites face Portugal, who are among the tournament favourites, in Kayseri on Wednesday in the round of 16 match.

The 2009 champions are Africa?s remaining side in the tournament after Nigeria were knocked out by Uruguay with a 2-1 defeat on Tuesday.

Nyantakyi is optimistic head coach Sellas Tetteh and his charges will meet expectations.

?The team started on a very slow note and now we have moved to the knockout stages of the competition and it is imperative that we win our next game against Portugal,? he told Joy sports

?It is not going to be easy but I believe Ghana is more motivated to win the next game having gone through a difficult qualification series, we have learnt a lot.

?I have personally spoken to the coach and he has admitted some of the mistakes we all saw in the first two games and the necessary remedial measures have been put in place to stop some of those problems from recurring.

?I?m very hopeful the Satellites team will go even beyond the quarter finals and make it to the Grand Finale and probably bring the trophy.?
