President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Kurt Okraku says he believes the current crop of Black Princesses players will make history at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica.
Coach Ben Fokuo and his team departed Accra on Wednesday morning and will face the France National U-20 side on Friday, July 29 as part of preparations for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica.
The Black Princesses will play USA in their opening game at the Estadio Alejandro Morera on August 11, before they take on the Netherlands and Japan in the other Group D matches.
“It’s been many weeks of hard work, waiting and you all dreaming of playing at the highest level of football in your category. Now the waiting is over, it’s time to be very focused for the last leg,” Kurt Okraku said ahead of the team’s departure.
“As you leave Ghana to France to continue the long journey to Costa Rica. I am sure it is a journey each of you have been waiting for.
“From your individual clubs, you were picked to represent the country and now is the moment. We have been on this journey before but we always exit at the group stage. But I believe we have a group of talented players who have the capacity to go and make history.”
