The female U-17 national team Black Maidens have arrived safely in the country following their resounding 2-0 victory over Liberia in the first leg of the 2020 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup qualifiers (WWCQ) qualifier in Monrovia.
The contingent comprising of the playing body, management officials of the Maidens, technical staff, led by the Black Maidens Management Committee Chairman and Executive Council Member of the Ghana Football Association, Nana Odudro Sarfo, arrived at the Kotoka International Airport at 19:00 GMT on Monday evening.
“We thank God we have arrived safely with all credit to the players
and technical team because it was not an easy task. Before we left, I
mentioned that we don’t have to look at the name Liberia and predict a
walkover even though, we knew we were going to beat them and you saw it
in the first half.”
“Majority of the girls are new so we had to encourage them. And they
came back to deliver in the second half where they got two chances and
“We thank God for the victory. We will make sure we correct all mistakes identified and make amends in the second leg”, head coach Baba Nuhu told the press on arrival.
The team has moved to the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence, Prampram where they have been camping for the qualifiers, and will continue camping as they prepare for the reversed fixture in two weeks time.
