Ghana U17 girls coach Evans Adotey insists his side are well prepared for the arduous task ahead at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup which begins on Saturday.

The Black Maidens open their campaign against Korea DPR, 2012 runners-up, tomorrow in Liberia in a Group B clash.

The 2012 World Cup bronze medalists will also play Germany and Canada.

After an eight-day training tour of USA, Aodtey says his side are ready.

"I was with the team in the last edition which won bronze, this time round, I am in charge with the expectation of going beyond where Ghana got to in the last edition," Adotey said.

"I am not predicting directly that I am winning silver or bronze. My first expectation or target is to win against Korea DPR and the next is to qualify to the next round.

"After that I would come out boldly to tell the whole nation where I want my team to belong."

Adotey, who was assistant coach when Ghana won bronze in Azerbaijan, is determined to make the best out of this opportunity.

"I am hundred percent sure that either we maintain or go beyond that," he said.
