10 years ago

Ghana advance in the qualifying for the FIFA Women's U-17 World Cup after completing back-to-back wins over Cameroon.

The Black Maidens beat their opponents 4-0 on Sunday at the Accra Sports Stadium to finish 5-0 winners on aggregate, having won the first leg 1-0 in Yaounde.

Beatrice Sesu, Ellen Coleman, Mary Essilful and Jane Ayieyam scored all four goals for Ghana in the one-sided game.

After 15th minutes, Sesu had put Ghana in front when she finished off a great move to end the first half 1-nil.

Back from recess, coach Mas-aud Didi Dramani made his first change with the introduction of Essilful and the substitute soon responded when she fired in a low grounder to double Ghana's lead.

Ayieyam scored the third goal before Okyere completed the rout with seven minutes of play remaining.

Ghana are pushing for one the three slots available to the continent for the World Cup in Azerbaijan later in September 2012 and that remains the Black Maidens' ultimate aim.

Qualification to the World Cup would make it a third successive appearance for Ghana on the world stage.
