Ghana improved its chances of reaching the last four stage in the qualifiers for the FIFA Women’s Under-20 World Cup with an impressive away win over Botswana.
The Black Princesses sealed a 4-1 win over their host in the first leg match of the first round qualifier played in Gaborone on Friday.
Ghana drew on the experience of striker, Anita Amankwah, a regular member of the senior team, the Black Queens.
Goals from the efforts of Diana Ankomah, who got a brace after scoring the Black Princesses’ first and third goals, Anita Amankwah and Portia Boakye helped Ghana to walk away with the convincing away win.
Ghana will host the reverse fixture at home in a fortnight. And an aggregate win over the two legs will qualify the Black Princesses into the last four stages of the African qualifiers.
Africa has two slots at the World Cup to be hosted by Chile which comes up between December 30, 2008 to January 17, 2009.
