U-20 Women’s WC Qualifier: Ghana off to Algeria Today


Ghana’s female Under-20 football team, the Black Princesses will depart Accra later today with a 25-man contingent to Algeria for their Women’s World Cup (WWC) appearance as they begin the qualifiers for the 2018 event to be staged in France.

The crucial encounter in Algiers comes off on an artificial turf and under floodlights and host the second leg next week in Accra.

With this the Princesses took the advantage last Friday to play a trial match at the Asamoah Gyan Sports Complex at Accra Academy constructed by Wembley Sports Construction Company Limited.

The team spent over three hours training on the artificial pitch and under the lights, an exercise Coach Basigi described as ‘cagey’ in their build up for Algeria.

“Of course, since the Princesses made their debut appearances at the 2010 WWC, our predecessors have always ensured that they have been at every competition and we will want to keep that chain.

“With most of the girls drawn from the previous Under-17 side, there is enough exposure and experience at that level. I think we will build it up from there and I’m very optimistic about our chances.

“We want to qualify for France 2018, and we will do all within our means, a game at a time, to ensure that,” he told Starr Sports.
