Ghana’s female Under-20 team, the Black Princesses secured passage to the fourth round of the 2022 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup qualifiers with a narrow 1-0 win over Zambia at the Cape Coast Stadium Saturday.

In-form Hasaacas Ladies midfielder Evelyn Badu scored the only goal of the game in the first half to send Coach Ben Fokuo’s girls through to the next phase of the qualifiers with a 1-0 aggregate scoreline after a goalless draw with the Copper Princesses at the Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka a fortnight ago.

The game started on a very high intensity with the Princesses attacking as they search for an important home goal whiles their Zambian opponents looked relaxed since any form a score draw was going to secure them qualification.

Despite the early dominance, Ghana had to endure the low defensive line of the visitors for a long spell in the game before eventually breathing a sigh of relief after skipper Evelyn Badu pounced on a loose ball to strike the game’s solitary goal in the 35th minute.

After the goal, the Zambians probed in search for the equaliser but the resolute backline of Ghana ensured they kept their advantage intact in the entire game to walk home with the win.

The win means, the Black Princesses will now face Uganda who defeated South Africa in the next round of the qualifiers as they continue the quest to secure a spot in next year’s FIFA Women’s U-20 World Cup.
