Coach Yissif Basigi says the Black Princesses are on a mission to qualify for another FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, Columbia 2024.

The experienced tactician was speaking to journalists on Saturday ahead to of the 2nd round 1st leg against Guinea Bissau on Sunday.

The team held an official training ahead the game at Estadio 24 de setembro which lasted for an hour.

“The weather is good just like Ghana so acclimatization has not been a problem and the time zone are the same because of the Greenwich and the reception has not been bad at all” Yissif Baisigi said.

“This sounds a caution to us not to underrate them because they have already played a high-profile match in the first round of the qualifiers beating Togo in both fixtures. We are yet to play in the second round but our players have been playing high profile games with the most recent one being the WAFU”

”I am happy we have the core team here only missing a few players for now but once we have the remaining players, I think it won’t be difficult to psych them”

“For injury situation, we don’t have any so far as the medical team is concerned because they have briefed me and assured me of the players fit for the match against Guinea Bissau. The enthusiasm and the will power to play is high and I am happy they responded very well at training today”

“We need the support and prayers of Ghanaians because the Black Princesses always impress and perform when it comes to the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup and the journey this year won’t be any different. We are on a mission to qualify again and we have to accomplish it so Ghanaians should support us and we will put up our best to make them happy”

The game is scheduled for Sunday, October 7, at 16:00 GMT with the return fixture scheduled for October 14, 2023 at the Accra Sports Stadium.
