Kotoko coach Mas-ud Dramani has backed Ghana’s female Under-20 team to excel at the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup which starts in Canada on Tuesday.
The Black Princesses will play host Canada in the tournament’s opener at the Toronto National Soccer stadium hoping to start on a blistering note.
The home team are determined to make an impressive start and fuel the gathering momentum behind the event.
Ghana starts with more modest aims as they look to survive the group stage for the first time at the third attempt.
And former Ghana Under-17 female team coach Mas-Ud Dramani is confident the Ghanaians will do well.
“It’s pretty difficult tournament for the girls but they can achieve their aim with the right attitude,” he said
“The opening match against the home side will always be difficult but we have to keep our heads high.
“The pressure will be on the home side and that could count as an advantage for us. I believe the girls have acclimatized enough and will do themselves and the nation proud.”
Ghana coach Bashir Hayford’s have enjoyed a tremendous outing in their pre-World Cup friendly matches in Toronto and will be a threat against The Young Canucks.
