Princesses hope for third-straight World Cup appearance

8 years ago

Ghana's hopes of a third-straight appearance at the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup reaches a decisive moment with the final round qualifiers this weekend.

The Black Princesses are away in Malabo for the first-leg of the last round of qualifying against Equatorial Guinea this Saturday for a place at the finals in Canada 2014.

For Ghana, who have already played at two previous World Cups since their debut in 2008, the chance of a third appearance will only happen if they get good results over both legs against Equatorial Guinea, who have hopes of reaching their first-ever world finals at this level.

There are two places on offer as Ghana and Equatorial Guinea battle for one spot while Nigeria meet South Africa in the other contest.

Winners after the two-leg ties will represent the continent at the final later in August of this year.
