Afia Nyarko replaces injured Evelyn Badu in Ghana squad at FIFA U-20 World Cup

Kumasi Sports Academy Afia Nyarko will replace Evelyn Badu in the Black Princesses team for the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica.

Afia Nyarko’s inclusion was approved by FIFA following the injury to captain Evelyn Badu.

The Kumasi Sports striker was with the team for preparations in France before she was dropped from the final list.

However, Badu’s injury, which rules her out of the competition means Afia Nyarko returns to the squad.

Ghana will open their U20 Women’s World Cup with a clash against the United States of America this evening before facing Japan on Sunday 14 August and the Netherlands three days later.
