The head coach of Ghana’s U-20 Women’s team, Ben Fokuo says his side will remain focused on their task of reaching this year’s U-20 World Cup when they face Ethiopia again in two weeks.
The Black Princesses hold a 3-0 advantage from the first leg in Addis Ababa courtesy of a brace from Salamatu Abdulai and a Cecilia Nyama strike.
With the Princesses set to take on the Ethiopians in the return leg on March 26, there is a fear that complacency might set in, given the significant lead Ghana holds going into the game.
However, Ben Fokuo insists that his team will not lose focus on their main goal of making it to the tournament in Costa Rica.
He stated that the Princesses, who returned to Accra on Monday, would not underrate their opponents and will be looking to build on their 3-0 advantage in order to secure a place at the World Cup.
“We are going to continue with our preparations as usual. We won away by 3 goals but we won’t underrate our opponents. We will go all out in the return fixture in Ghana and hopefully get all the maximum points.” he said.
The Princesses have made it through to every World Cup since 2002 and will hope to book one of Africa’s two slots for the tournament in August.
The team is currently camping at the Ghanaman Centre of Excellence at Prampram.
