Women’s U-20 WC: Black Princesses cry for food

Head coach of Black Princesses, Yusif Basigi has revealed they have failed to start preparing for the upcoming Women’s World Cup [WWC] due to the lack of food.

The Ghana U-20 female team completed a fifth successive qualification to the tournament after recording a 4-1 aggregate win over Cameroon.

Basigi and his ladies will open their 2018 FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup campaign against hosts France on Sunday, 5 August 2018.

But the former Sekondi Hasaccas trainer expressed concern given the short time they have to prepare for the tournament.

“We are waiting for a green light before we can start camping but the truth is time is not on our side.

“Per our arrangement with the GFA, we were supposed to start camping about a month ago, unfortunately, that has not been the case.

“The main reason why we are not in camp is that there is no food available for the girls to eat at the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence.

“The FA was supposed to arrange with a caterer to cater for the team in camp but as I speak to you now that has not been done,” he added.

The 2018 FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup will run from 5-24 August in France.
