The National U-17 Female Soccer team the Black Maidens will play the young Scorpions of Gambia in a return leg encounter on Sun, 17th December, 2017 at the Cape Coast Stadium.

Ghana secured a 5-1 win in the first leg clash a fortnight ago at Gambia and would be hoping to sink the scorpions deeply to gain a step into the U-17 WWC qualifiers.

Despite the resounding victory, pundits are of the view that the second encounter is a mere formality however, head coach of the Maidens, Evans Adotey thinks differently.

According to the Coach, he expects a similar or much better results from the Gambian game, but he has made a few changes to augment the squad.

“Winning five-one far away in Gambia doesn’t mean the second leg encounter is not a mere formality. Anything can happen in the game because other people are also knocking on the doors. I will introduce a defender and an extra attacker making two this time around. That is my game plan”. He said in an interview with the media.


The Ex- Medeama SC coach revealed that his target is to see the Maidens qualify to the next stage and eventually the World Cup in Uruguay.

“We want to ensure Ghana qualifies to the next stage and get the nod in the World Cup next year. So we have psyched them already about the task ahead." He added.

A win for Ghana will see facing Djibouti in the next stage of the U-17 WWC qualifiers.

The Maidens will play a friendly Match with Hallsports Ladies at the Cape Coast Stadium today, Tuesday, 12th December, 2017.
