The Black Princesses may have lost their opening Group A match against France in the FIFA Women’s U-20 World Cup on Sunday but that did not mean that former Black Stars and Chelsea midfielder, Michael Essien was not pleased with the team’s output.
Ghana lost 4-1 to the home team on Sunday after conceding goals from Helene Fercocq, Emelyne Laurent and Sandy Baltimore.
After the match, Essien, who had visited the team before kick-off, posted a tweet and encouraged the Black Princesses to persevere and that, he was behind them.

Essien is in France to watch the tournament as a special invited guest of FIFA to provide support and motivation for the Ghanaian team.
The Black Princesses will face Holland and New Zealand in their subsequent Group A matches on August 8 and 12 respectively.
