Black Maidens to face hosts Uruguay in World Cup
The national u-17 women’s national football team of Ghana will take on their Uruguayan counterparts tonight.
In 2012, Ghana made history when they became the first African country to win a medal at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup and on their way to the final they thrashed Uruguay 5-0 in the group stage.
Ahead of the opener tonight, coach of the Black Maidens Evans Adotey has stated how important it is for his side to pick all three points against the hosts.
"We need to start well by winning our first game against the hosts, it is crucial we do that since we want to make the next stage early," he said in a pre-match interview.
The kick-off time for the game is 11pm Ghanaian time.
