Black Princesses up their preparations in Canada

Coach Bashir Hayford insists that preparations is the primary concern for the Ghana U-20 women’s team at the moment as they continue their pre-World Cup workout in Canada.

Hayford’s team drew 1-1 with the U-21 side of North Missisauga Panther in Toronto this week. Sarah Cola opened the scoring for the hosts early in the second half before Jennifer Cudjoe drew Ghana level.

“Everybody’s going to challenge for the cup and we didn’t come here to joke around,” said Ghana coach Bashir Hayford. 

“We’re here to acclimatize to the conditions and weather here.”

The Black Princesses who have been training at the Hershey Sports Complex in Missisauga will take on G-S United, who lead the domestic women’s league in Canada in their second friendly match on Tuesday.

Ghana will be making their third appearance on the World stage when the competition starts on 5 August in Toronto.

The Black Princesses have been drawn with hosts Canada in Group A alongside Finland and former champions Korea DPR.

Ghana and the hosts will contest the tournament’s opening match at Toronto’s National Stadium.

The World Cup will be played out between 5 and 24 August.
