After three group stage matches at the ongoing FIFA u-17 women’s world cup in Uruguay, the black maidens of Ghana are certainly making a statement with their performances.
Their first match against the host nation set the tone as the black maidens quickly showed they meant business with a five-goal thrashing against their Uruguayan opponents.
The attacking flair of the black maidens was put on display against Finland and New Zealand with 3-1 and 2-0 wins respectively.
With ten goals scored and one goal conceded, the maidens are indeed showing promise.
Coach Evans Adotey seems to have set up his team to be fearless in attack but solid in defence as well.
Captain and striker of the Black maidens, Mukarama Abdulai leads the score chart with six goals so far, scoring in each of the matches played so far.
Ghanaians would be excited with how the maidens have performed so far, but keeping our expectations to a minimum is best for all, with defending champions North Korea still in the competition, the maidens would surely be put to the test by some formidable sides in the competition
The maidens come up against Mexico on Sunday, this would be no easy game, but if their performances are anything to go by, the black maidens know how to score goals as well as defend.
Coach Adotey and his girls would certainly be looking to turn up the heat against this Mexican side.
The big question is, can the maidens do something special?
