Mukarama, Teye goals nominated for awards

Black Maidens forwards Abdulai Mukarama and Suzzy Teye’s strikes have been nominated for the goal of the tournament award at the just ended FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup.

Captain Mukarama’s third goal against Uruguay in the opening game of group A was nominated as one of the best strikes of the competition.

The Northern Ladies striker, who scored a hat-trick on the day, turned the Uruguayan defence before poking home Ghana’s fifth on match day 1. Ghana beat Uruguay 5-0.

Meanwhile, Suzzy Teye scored a brilliant goal against Mexico after his first touch from a Mukarama pass displaced the Mexican defender before she coolly slotted in for Ghana’s second.

The two goals by the Ghanaians were among a list of ten goals picked, which would be voted for with the best selected at the end of voting.

Voting closes at noon (11am Ghana time) on Monday, December 10.

Both players were exceptional at the competition with Ghana’s captain winning the Golden Boot award as well as the Bronze Ball.

The Black Maidens reached the quarter finals after losing 4-2 on penalties to Mexico, who reached the finals only to lose to Spain.


Meanwhile, the Normalisation Committee of Ghana football has congratulated Black Maidens captain, Abdulai Mukarama over her achievements at the just ended FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup.


“GFA Normalization Committee congratulates Ghana U17 captain, Mukarama Abdulai, for winning the Golden Boot after finishing top scorer at the 2018 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup held in Uruguay.
