Black Maidens ready for Liberia in World Cup qualifier

Ghana’s Black Maidens will begin their U-17 Women’s World Cup qualifiers tomorrow with a game against Liberia in Monrovia.

The Maidens are poised for victory as they seek to book qualification to the U-17 World Cup.

The team has been in camp for the past few weeks and featured in several friendly matches in a bid to get them ready and fit mentally and physical.

The young female Lone Stars began their campaign against Niger in a two-legged affair where they defeated Niger 4-0 in Monrovia and 5-0 in Niamey.

As one of the few players from the previous U-17 squad that did Ghana proud in the FIFA Women’s U-17 World Cup in Uruguay and now the captain of the current squad, Bassira Alhassan believes the Black Maidens was ready for the Liberians.

She told the Times Sports that “All I can say is that the team is well prepared for this World Cup qualifier. We have been in camp for some few weeks; we trained and played together as usual so I think we are well prepared for the task.

“Ghana is always at the top and there is no fear in us because we are always ready to defend the nation’s flag. What I can say to Ghanaians is that they should be with us in prayer and support us and we will also deliver results for them.”

The clash will take place at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium, at 4:00pm GMT in Monrovia, Liberia with a return leg set to take place two weeks time in Ghana.
