Captain Grace Adams promises Princesses will bounce back strongly against Finland

Black Princesses captain Grace Adams remains hopeful of beating Finland on Tuesday to advance from the Group stage at the 2014 FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup.

Ghana suffered a 3-0 drubbing at the hands of Korea DPR and must win their final league match to seal through.

They are now in a tight corner despite and face early elimination despite winning  their opener against hosts Canada 1-0 last week.

The Princesses arrived in Moncton, venue for the match, and adjusted to the cold weather conditions in the city.

Bashir Hayford’s ladies must bounce back strongly and captain Adams agrees they are mentally fit to meet expectations.

"We never got down on ourselves," Adams told

"We know that we've still got room for improvement and, above all, that we still have a chance of qualifying. So why would we be sad?"

"We're trying to think about the next match, not the previous one. We have to look forwards, not backwards.”

    Tactical and strong players are left home just because GFA is bias to ladies footballers.... come home cause i cant see the footballers in you.... Take along well tactical and commitment players like Ayieyam, Salamatu and Linda smith for God sake.... Ghana needs the cup not money.... corruption has drawn Ghana!!!

    why are Ghanaians like that? We need to be real in some circumstances and we will forever go forward. The princesses did their best but we need a change next time. There should be a change of players so that we can see our weak points and betterness in the players. The dropping of new players should not be our work of the day. Everything needs change but it seems we dont advice ourselves. we need to sit up cos we are not bad in football. Better luck next time princesses
