Head coach of Ghana's U-17 female team, Baba Nuhu has expressed his satisfactory over his outfit's preparation ahead of the crucial encounter against Nigeria.

The Black Maidens are seeking a seventh straight appearance at the U-17 World Cup and welcome Nigeria for the first leg this m0nth.

The winner over two legs qualifies to the tournament in India in February-March 2021 after it was moved from its original date of November 2020 due to the Coronavirus crisis.

Coach Nuhu's side had been in camp for several months before the emergence of the Coronavirus.

The team have regrouped for the past five weeks, preparing fervently for the upcoming clash against their sworn rivals.

"It is one of the tests matches we have lined up so far to access how the girls are faring.  We have been in camp for the past five weeks and taking them through a lot of things gradually," Nuhu told Ghana FA's website.

"What I was looking for in this match is how to take our opponent out when they come attacking, because the whole of this week, we have been looking out to see how best we can play for our team strategy."

"My mind is not on the score line but they played very well in the first half and the second half I have to field other players as well so that in the absence of one or two players, I know how they can manage to play. I think am satisfied basically after spending five weeks in camp with this performance," he concluded.
