Five-star Maidens hit Uruguay 5-nil

11 years ago

Ghana continued the goal feast at the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup with a five-nil thumping of newcomers, Uruguay on Wednesday in Group D.

The win, the first for the Black Maidens after an opening defeat to Germany enhances their chances of a first quarter-final berth as they make their third appearance at the competition.

A brace from Priscilla Okyere and strikes by Fatima Alhassan, Jane Ayieyam and Alberta Ahialey handed the Black Maidens a good result ahead of the final group fixture against China PR over the weekend.
