BLACK PRINCESSES IN FRANCE. WHO MADE THE TRIP?

The technical team of the Ghana national under 20 Women's side led by Coach Yussif Basigi has a snag in preparations for the World Cup following the ban placed on football in the country. A training camp scheduled for Spain was cancelled as the team travelled to Kumasi to play some preparatory games instead. 


The team left the shores of the West African country for France with the burden of making it out of the group stage for the first time. 

The Coaches left for the tournament with a team dominated by players that featured at the U-17 Women's World Cup two years ago.

A team of 21 players and 8 officials in all will be representing the Red, Gold, Green and Black Star flag at the global funfair. 

Meanwhile, Ampem Darkoa Ladies forward, Priscilla Adubea will be missing the tournament. The Captain who scored 10 goals for the Princesses during the qualifiers had been battling an anterior cruciate ligament injury and successfully had a surgery in July. 

FC Minsk midfielder, Ernestina Albambila will wear the number 10 jersey worn previously by influential forward Princella Adubea. She is joined by Sandra Owusu Ansah as the only players to have played at the 2016 edition. 

Rafia Alhassan takes up the captaincy role in Adubea's absence as the Princesses play against France in the opening game before taking up maidens, Netherlands. They cap off the group stages with a game against Oceania giants New Zealand.
