Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has applauded the U-20 female football team, the Black Princesses, for qualifying for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica.
Dr Bawumia described the team’s sixth successive qualification to the World Cup as a “remarkable feat worth commending”.
The Black Princesses secured a slot in the World Cup on Sunday, 27 March 2022 after a 2-1 victory over Ethiopia on home soil.
The Ghanaian team had in the first leg beaten Ethiopia 3-0 away in Abebe Bekila Stadium in Addis Ababa thereby qualifying on a 5-1 aggregate.
The Black Princesses will join 15 other countries for this year’s tournament in Costa Rica.
The tournament will run from 10–28 August in two cities San José and Alajuela.
