Princesses staying positive for final tie

Date: 18-May-2012












A place at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup is almost certain for Ghana's women's U-20 team, who are chasing their second straight appearance.

The Black Princesses who won 3-1 in the first leg against Tunisia are 90 minutes away from becoming one of Africa's two representatives for the World Cup.

Nervousness will not in says, Robert Sackey, coach of the Ghana team as they prepare to play the Tunisians at the Accra Sports Stadium at 3:00pm on Saturday.

"We are trying to stay positive and think positive, that's the only way we can be positive," Sackey told www.ghanafa.org on Friday.

"We are not nervous. Nervousness doesn't in come here.

"They[Black Princesses] have been there [World Cup] before. They are very poised and have the experience to go about situations like this. That is what they are about."

With a 3-1 lead and a tie away from reaching the finals in Azerbaijan, Sackey is confident of their chances but insists that the Black Princesses 'will do what it takes' to finish with a win.

"In a match like this, you don't need to think beyond the game. They will do what it takes.

"It's not about the goal margins. What matters most is doing what it takes to win.

Ghana made their World Cup debut in the Germany 2010 finals.

Ghana U-20 Ladies rout Tunisia and qualify for World Cup

Subject : Ghana U-20 Ladies rout Tunisia and qualify for World Cup
Message :





Ghana’s U-20 Women’s team, Black Princesses came from behind to beat their Tunisians counterparts 4-1 on Saturday in Accra to book their place at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, Japan 2012.

The Ghanaians survived a first half scare from the North Africans and scored four goals in the second half to complete a double and march into the final tournament 7-2 on aggregate.

The Black Princesses will be making their second successive appearance at the biennial championship, after their debut two years ago in Germany.

Like in the first leg a fortnight ago, it was the Tunisians who shot into the lead as early as the 22nd minute through Imem Ben Mrad, via a corner-kick effected by Chaima Albassi.

The homers lifted up their game in the second half and succeeded in restoring parity just three minutes into the half. Midfielder Elizabeth Addo scored the equalizer by firing past Tunisian goalkeeper Mouriem Ben Sassi from a Priscilla Saahene pass.

It was the Ghanaians all the way and on 54 minutes, Alice Eva Danso put them up with a header from Deborah Afriyie’s cross from the flanks.

On 75 minutes, United States-based forward Candice Osei Agyemang scored the third goal before Addo completed the routing with the fourth goal on the stroke of full time.

An elated Ghana coach, Robert Sackey was full of praise for his team for achieving their aim.

“I’m very happy we have qualified. It was a difficult match but we returned the better side in the second half and took our chances. There is still some work to do before the World Cup,” Sackey said.

The final tournament will take place from 19 August to 8 September in Japan.

Candice striving for World Cup place

Date: 03-Jul-2012












Getting a place on Ghana's U-20 women's team roster is Candice Osei-Agyemang's top priority ahead of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Japan later in August.

The University of Arizona player is spending most of her summer days in training to get her ready when the Black Princesses get their preparations underway this month.

For Candice, her workouts will put her in a good stead when coach Robert Sackey gets his team together.

"To earn a spot on the roster with the Ghana U20 team would mean so much," Osei-Agyemang said.

"It means a lot of years of hard work paying off and a progression since I also played in the FIFA U17 Women's World Cup in New Zealand. I will be given an opportunity to play at a higher level, and I would get to represent a part of my heritage through sports."

And she praises her trainers and coaches who have prepared her mentally and physically for her tryouts for a position in the Black Princesses.

"During this past year of playing at the University of Arizona," Osei-Agyemang said.

"My coaches and trainers have really prepared me for such an opportunity. Within our various workouts, I have learned to always strive for more, to go above and beyond what I consider to be enough."

The Black Princesses have been drawn against the U.S, China PR and reigning champions Germany in the group stage of this year's World Cup in Japan.

Ghana's opening game in Group D with the U.S will come off in Hiroshima on 20th August, a day after the 21-day tournament commences.

The Black Princesses will conclude the group stage fixtures against China PR in Saitama on 27th August.

Ghana made their World Cup debut in the Germany 2010 finals.

Camp woes for Black Princesses
20 July, 2012

By Gary Al-Smith/Supersport.com

Exactly a month to his team's World Cup opening game, Ghana's national women's under 20 team coach has admitted he has no idea of what is going on with his side. Group D of the Women's World Youth Championships sees Ghana together with Germany, China and USA in Group D but preparations are still in shambles.

"I have to tell you that I do not know what is happening. We have no concrete plans and it's all up there."

There had been hints in the media that the team will embark on a tour in the United States to help the side prepare for their first game against the USA in Hiroshima.

"Our first game is on August 20th and we hope preparations will go well soon. I was told of some prep games to get the ladies' up to speed and ready but I'm yet to hear anything," a flustered Sackey tells SuperSport.com.

Another early crash?

Ghana have participated in one U-20 Women’s World Cup to date, qualifying for the world finals for the first time at Germany 2010. Far from being overawed, the side made an impressive debut as they most notably held Chile 2008-winners USA to a 1-1 draw in their first match of the group phase.

They then second match saw them go down 4-2 against a strong Korea Republic side and, though they rounded off their appearance with a 2-0 defeat of Switzerland, their time in Germany was cut short at the group stage.

Already, Nigeria's Desire Oparanozie is psychologically ready, telling Fifa.com of her dreams.

"We know the pressure is on Nigeria because of our performance at the last World Cup, but we are working towards posting another good outing," declared centre forward , who along with Ebere Orji was the team’s leading scorer with two goals at Germany 2010.

But despite the glaring lack of preparation, the team's star player, Florence Dadson remains optimistic. "We truly hope our plans to go and get some good friendly games because it will help a lot," she told Accra-based Joy FM on Thursday.

"As for the players we are ready to go. We are experienced for the most part and we really want to make our country proud."

Ghana play the States on August 20 and then Germany three days later before finishing the group against China on August 27th.

Ghana beat Nigeria in women's U-20 friendly

Date: 24-Jul-2012












Ghana's U-20 women's team beat Nigeria in the first match of the two-leg international friendly match series at the Accra Sports Stadium on Tuesday.

The Black Princesses are now gunning for a double when they play the second game after winning 3-2 win in the opening fixture.

The Falconets returned from the interval a much better opposition with Esther Sunday pulling a goal back after she capitalized on a defensive mix-up to score.

However, Ghana soon re-established their two-goal lead as midfielder Elizabeth Addo scored the third goal on 72 minutes for the Black Princesses.

Four minutes after Addo's volleyed goal, Desire Oparanozie scored to cut Ghana's lead.

Princesses’ USA tour In Limbo - report
30 July, 2012





By Russell Wiafe

Footy-ghana.com understands that, the National Under 20 Women’s team, the Black Princesses’ proposed trip to the United States for a training tour ahead of the 2012 FIFA Women’s Youth Cup is in limbo due to unpaid bonuses.

According to our sources, most of the players have made it clear to the top hierarchy of the team that they will leave for the States only if the monies owed them are paid.

Apparently, some match bonuses accruing to the players after qualifying to the World Cup have not been paid.

23 players together with the technical team are scheduled to leave for California USA tomorrow for two weeks before leaving for the World Cup in Japan, but the trip is now in doubt unless matters are resolved at the last minute.

The Black Princesses have been drawn in a tough group in the women’s world cup which comprises of USA, China PR and Germany.
