Ghana U17 coach Paa Kwesi Fabin has predicted that his side will win the 2017 FIFA U17 World Cup in India.

The Black Starlets have been preparing for the tournament at the Ghanaman Soccer School of Excellence in Prampram.

They are scheduled to embark on a tour of Denmark and Spain to intensify work for the showpiece.

''I can compete for the trophy perfectly because the performance of the new players such as Richard Danso from WAFA, the three Right to Dream boys, Isaac Gyamfi who could not made it to AFCON due to groin injury is also back fully fit,'' Fabin told

''There is big competition in the team and I believe is good for us. The team spirit and morale is also high, I can predict we will win the trophy.''

Ghana is drawn in Group A alongside hosts USA, India and Columbia for the tournament which runs from 06-26 October.
