Ghana U20 Women's Team Set For August 9 USA Tour

The Under 20 female soccer team of Ghana the Black Princesses will embark on a training tour ahead of their world cup competition in Japan in August.

The tour forms part of their training schedule for the championships which begins on August 9.

Considering the poor performance of the team in Germany two years ago, the technical board has decided that a training tour in the United States will help prepare the team adequately for the tournament.

The team currently camps at the Ghanaman soccer for excellence in Prampram and will leave for U.S.A next week.

According to the technical director, Oti Akenteng, the board decided the tour will help the team to acclimatise and get the needed exposure before the competition.

“They have done enough work at home and we believe that when they are exposed outside with the kind of preparation they will get in U.S.A, they will be in good shape for the championship”

“We have seen them play in friendlies here and they have been positive and so the F.A has given a nod to that and the ministry is doing everything to make it a success” Oti Akenteng stated.

The Princesses are in the same group with U.S.A, Germany, and China
