Ghana's Sports Minister Mustapha Ussif has congratulated the Black Maidens following their emphatic 3-1 away win against Guinea in the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup qualifiers.

Ghana got off to a good start at the Stade Général Lansana Conté de Nongo. Captain Georgina Aoyem led by example with a composed finish on 13 minutes.

Rasheeda Sahadu of Pearlpia Ladies doubled Ghana's lead in the 31st minute with a left-foot strike into the top right corner.

Coach Baba Nuhu's girls were up 2-0 at the halftime break.

However, in the second half, the Guineans came chasing a comeback and managed to cut the deficit in half in the 48th minute.

Black Maidens restored the two-goal lead just before the hour mark. It was scored by another Pearlpia Ladies player, the tireless striker Mariama Maltiti Iddi.

As a result, the Black Maidens have the advantage heading into the second leg on April 30 at the Cape Coast Stadium.

The Sports Minister in a post has urged the team to finish the task and qualify to the next stage in the second leg.

"Congratulations to our girls on their 3-1 victory over their Guinean counterpart. Now let's return to Ghana and finalize the deal"
