Ghana Black Princesses head coach Yussif Basigi has announced his final team for next month’s Under-20 Women’s World Cup.
Yussif Basigi will be without the experienced Princella Adubea, who also scored 10 goals in the African qualifiers, through injury.
She was aiming to put the disappointment of two years ago behind after she failed to score at the finals in Papua New Guinea.
But Basigi can count on the experience of Abambila Ernestina and Sandra Owusu Ansah as they seek to reach at least a maiden quarter finals stage.
“We’re really hoping to make it this time. That’s our objective.” said coach Basigi.
The West Africans will play the hosts France in their first match in Vannes on 5 August before Group A fixtures against the Netherlands three days later and New Zealand on 12 August.
Ghana will be making their fifth appearance at the women youth football festival slated for France.
GHANA’s final squad:
Goalkeepers: Annan Martha, Agyemang Esther and McCarthy Kerrie.
Defenders: Agbonadzi Shine, Asamoah Joyce, Asuako Philicity, Hagan Cecilia, Tweneboah Justice, Amoako Linda, Anane Belinda, Badu Evelyn
Midfielders: Anokye Olivia, Agyemang Adu, Asantewaa Grace, Acheampong Grace, Abambila Ernestina.
Forwards: Sandra Owusu Ansah, Rafia Alhassan, Obeng Helena, Anima Ruth, Patience Peterson.
