Ghana's Black Maidens will be without defender Ivy Kolli for Tuesday's Fifa U-17 Women's World Cup semi-final clash with France in Baku.

The 16-year-old who was influential in the group stages wins over Uruguay and China missed out of Friday's quarter-final triumph over Japan with a hamstring injury.

Coach Mas-Ud Didi Dramani confirmed the Inter Royal Ladies' enterprising defender will miss the all-important clash.

"We have minor injury concerns in camp but one player (Ivy Kolli) has been ruled out of the game against France," he told Accra-based Hot FM.

Ghana became the first African country to qualify for the semi-finals in the competition's history after beating Japan 1-0 on Friday evening.

    If she even missed out against Japan, then why cry wolf? To me Japan's game was the strongest. If Ghana meets Germany against the result will favor Ghana. we are okay. Get well soon Sister Kolli, and thank you for your hard work. The Cup is coming to Africa for the first time, yes, we know how to do it because we done it before with our boys. GO MAIDENS !!!!!!
