Maidens ready to face Morocco today

The National U-17 female team, Black Maidens, will this evening face off with Morocco in a FIFA World Cup qualifying match.

Maidens left Accra on Wednesday for the first of a two-legged affair on Friday March 11 at 16:00 GMT.

Sierra Leone pulled out earlier on in the first round to make room for the two countries to meet.

The team has held a couple of training sessions since arriving in the North African nation.

Team coach Evans Adotey and the girls are fired up and poised to clear this hurdle so as to repeat a feat chalked in 2012 or go beyond.

Ghana placed third in 2012 after defeating Germany by a goal to nil; a tournament hosted in Azerbaijan.

This year’s competition, being the 5th edition, will be hosted by Jordan from 30th September to 21st October.
