Black Maidens captain Sandra Owusu Ansah is targeting the top scorers award at the 2016 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup which kick off in Jordan this weekend.

The 16-year-old is hoping to lead her country to record another historic feat at the global showpiece.


“Training has gone on very well for us in Jordan and it has really helped because we are now used to the weather conditions here”,she told Ghana FA's official website

“For us, as a team our collective objective is to do better than the 2012 squad that won bronze. We want to qualify from the group stage and focus on finishing as winners or at least runners up at the tournament”, the Ghana skipper said.

“Just as I scored that goal to win a best player award two years ago, this year I am targeting to score more and hopefully emerge as top scorer of tournament”.

She added: “We know the Japanese are good at possessing the ball so our strategy against them in the opening match will be to defend very well and keep the ball away from them”, she concluded.

The Black Maidens open their campaign against defending champions Japan on October 1 at the Prince Mohammed International stadum in Al Zarqa.
