Ghana play Botswana away

15 years ago

Ghana will continue with the dream of reaching the FIFA Women’s Under-20 World Cup when the Black Princesses play Botswana today in the first leg match of the first round qualifier.

As Africa’s qualifying campaign narrows down to eight teams, the Black Princesses led by Francis Oti Akenteng and Ben Fokouh - assistant for the team, will attempt recording a good result away and seek a last four place when they play in Gaborone on Friday.

Ghana's technical team remain confident of the teams chances today and they would be counting on Siela Owusu and Diana Ankomah to lead the attack.

The Black Princesses reached this stage of the qualifying series after edging out Guinea 7-0 on aggregate in the preliminary round qualifier while Botswana overcame Lesotho.

Africa has two slots at the World Cup to be hosted by Chile which comes up between December 30, 2008 to January 17, 2009.
