Update from international development coach.

International development coach Gordon Chisholm watched from the stands as Ghana notched a vital 2-1 win over Zambia to reach the World Cup 2014 qualification play-offs last Friday.

The Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi played host to the game, with a packed crowd in attendance. Chisholm had to take his seat an incredible three hours before kick-off to guarantee his spot ahead of the hotly-anticipated encounter.

Earlier in the day, the coach looked in on the Kotoko first team as they prepared for a Super Cup match against Medeama FC.

On Saturday, Chisholm then took a 45-minute flight to Accra, where he took in an under-17 game before flying to Johannesburg in South Africa to link up with partner club Bidvest Wits.

The former Sunderland player has spent the last week working with Kotoko's youth development staff and young players.
