Ghana to host Gambia in FIFA U-17 Women Cup qualifiers 2nd leg

Wednesday, December 13, 2017

Ghana will host The Gambia in the second leg of the 2018 FIFA U-17 Women Cup qualifiers set for Saturday 23 December 2017 in Cape Coast.

The Gambian teenagers are hopeful to overturn a 5-1 deficit when they square off their counterparts in the return leg.

The Gambia’s only goal at the home leg was scored by Fatoumatta Sowe with a thunderous but coiling free kick although the visitors won heavily 5-1 at the end of regular time.

The girls are gingered with the possible return of captain and play maker Aminata Camara who missed the home leg due to bereavement.

Aminata together with Ola Buwaro and Catherine Jatta registered for the Gambia when they deservedly outclassed Sierra Leone in the first round of the series.

The team is expected to leave Banjul on Thursday 21st Dec for Accra before going further west to Cape Coast.

Meanwhile, the team is winding up their local technical preparation at the Independence Stadium in Bakau under the tutelage of Coach Abdoulie Bojang.
