Ghana is now in the final of U20 Women’s World Cup qualifiers after a gruelling victory over Zambia on Cape Coast Stadium on Saturday, December 18.
The Black Princesses were aware that any form of win would be sufficient for them following their goalless draw in the opening leg just two weeks back in Lusaka.
They got a 1-0 win due to Hasaacas Ladies attacking midfielder Evelyn Badu who scored the crucial goal in the opening half.
Both teams had good chances in the opening exchanges, but were unable to take advantage of their chances when the clock was ticking.
However, a quick team play gave the Princesses a deserved advantage within the 35th minute of the match, with Badu scoring brilliantly.
After recess, the Young Copper Queens looked more than threatening on the ball, but they couldn’t defeat goalkeeper Cynthia Konlan who was on form.
While forward Rahama Jafar missed an excellent chance to increase Ghana’s lead.
The princesses will take on Uganda, who eliminated South Africa in the next round.
The FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup is scheduled for Costa Rica in 2022.
