The Black Princesses have intensified their preparation for the second leg clash with Ethiopia on Sunday at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

Winner in the two-legged affair will qualify for the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup to be staged in Papua New Guinea.

Mas-Ud Dramani’s side find themselves in an advantaged position following the two all drawn encounter recorded in the first leg in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa.

Ghana came back from a first half 1-2 deficit to secure a draw following a late equaliser in the second half of the game in which the Ethiopians claimed luck smiled on Ghana.

With the score pegged at 2-2, Ghana could qualify even in the case of a barren draw but Mas-Ud Didi Dramani and his charges are truly poised to secure victory no matter the kind of opposition the visitors present.

Ghana having qualified to the last two editions, the playing body is in high spirit to make a third consecutive appearance and that was evident in the seriousness and focus of the girls at yesterday’s training session at the WESCO pitch in Kumasi.
