The Black Maidens of Ghana have been banned from competing in the next two editions of the FIFA U17 Women’s African Qualifiers and fined $100,000.
This is after a Moroccan protest that Nancy Amoh and Rasheeda Shahadu falsified their birthdate information and are above U17.
After their first leg of the qualifiers, Moroccan Journalist Fatima Bartalli claimed five of Ghana’s players were not within the age limits hence the FA planning to take action after receiving evidence to that.
The Black Maidens missed couple of players including key member Constance Agyemang, Dejean Kubura and team captain Georgina Aoyem.
Ghana beat Morocco 2-0 in the first leg game played at the Accra Sports Stadium before they lost to the Moroccans in the second leg on penalty shootout after a 2-2 draw.
The team will not participate in the next two qualifying series as revealed.
