Ghana's No. 1

Black Maidens backed to beat Morocco in U-17 World Cup qualifiers final round

Published on: 04 May 2022

Nana Oduro Sarfo, chairman of the Black Maidens management committee, has backed the team to defeat Morocco in the final qualifying round and secure a place at the 2022 U-17 Women's World Cup in India.

The Black Maidens easily defeated Guinea in the previous round, winning 10-1 on aggregate, and will face Morocco in the final round.

Ghana will host Morocco in the first leg on May 22, 2022, at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium, before travelling to Rabat for the second leg.

"We are not afraid of Morocco, the last time we met in a friendly we beat them here 2-0. There hasn’t been any instance Morocco has beaten us at this level, there can be a first time but not with the current team we have", Oduri Sarfo told Happy FM.

"The Moroccans come here to learn women’s football here. You see how they struggled to beat Benin which is a football nation but defeated Niger 11-0 on aggregate.

He added, "We will win the game here so when we go there it will be a mere formality."

The Maidens are hoping to emulate the Princesses, who qualified for the U-20 World Cup earlier this year.
