U-20 WWC: Eliminated Black Princesses take on Netherlands in final Group game today

The Black Princesses of Ghana will take on Netherlands in their last Group D match.

The game will be played at the Estadio Nacional De Costa Rica on Wednesday, August 17 at 22:00 GMT.

Ghana crashed out of the tournament after losing 2-0 to Japan in their second Group D game last Sunday and have no point after losing two matches.

The Black Princesses despite qualifying for the tournament for a record sixth time have failed to make it pass the first round.

Technical Advisor of the Black Princesses, Nora Hauptle is confident the team will put up a good performance in their last game.

“Pressure is part of our football life especially in the World Cup. I think there is a progression from the France friendly to the USA game and Japan. We couldn’t get the goal from the Japan match and they scored two penalty goals. We scored a goal but it was ruled offside and so we see our progression,” Hauptle told ghanafa.org.

“We work on our performance and we know that in the last game anything can happen so we focus on our performance and it is rising so we can take the momentum and in soccer, everything is possible. We will fight until the last minute considering the fact that we have one of the toughest groups but until the last minute, we believe that it is possible.”

She added, “In our last game against Japan, we had the biggest chance in the first half and we are not there yet but close to the transition moments and make sure we utilize our chances.”
