Ghana’s U17 female team players will bag $15,000 each for securing qualification to the quarter-finals of the ongoing FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica, GHANAsoccernet.com can reveal.

The Ghanaians downed European Queens Germany 1-0 in Liberia to secure their passage to the knockout phase.

Gladay’s Amfobea delivered a strong back post header from a sideline free-kick to give the Africans the only goal of the match.

The qualification has enrich the pocket of the young girls as they will each pocket $15,000 as qualification bonus- far from what the Black Stars get in friendly matches.

That is because the Black Stars are a bigger brand with bigger stars who rake in money from their participation in the World Cup tournament while the Maidens who are school girls bring in little.

The Black Maidens will top group B even if they lose to Canada in their last group game.
