Black Maidens set to arrive in Accra on Wednesday.

The Black Maidens will arrive in Accra on Wednesday morning after failing to qualify for the semifinals stage of the 2018 FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup being staged in Uruguay.

The national U17 female team were knocked out of the World Cup after losing 4-2 on penalties to Mexico on Sunday evening at the Estadio Charrua, Montevideo. The Ghanaian Delegation which is led by Mr Francis Oti Akenteng and Head Coach Evans Adotey left Montevideo, Uruguay on Monday afternoon to São Paulo where they will transit to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Tuesday evening. The team will leave Addis Ababa on Wednesday morning and arrive in Accra at 11:20 am.

Ghana took the lead twice in Sunday’s game but Mexican captain Nicole Perez equalized each of the goals for her side to take the game into penalty shootouts. This is the third time the Black Maidens have been knocked out of the competition at the quarterfinals after losing at the stage in 2014 and 2016 previously.

Ghana had its best start in the competition after winning all three group matches beating hosts Uruguay (5-0), Finland (3-1) and New Zealand (2-0). Black Ghana’s Mukarama Abdulai and Grace Animah also won Player of the match awards in the three graoup matches.
