Ghana’s Black Princesses fell to a 4-0 defeat at the hands of the France U-20 women’s team in a friendly game at Clairefontaine in France on Friday afternoon as they prepare for the U-20 Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica.

A first-half brace from Vicki Becho, a smart finish from Esther Mbakem-Nairo and a penalty from Laurina Fazer ensured victory for the hosts.

Vicki started the onslaught in the 15th minute, slotting the ball past the helpless opposition goalkeeper and doubled the team’s advantage seven minutes later with a good finish.

France went into the break with a 2-0 advantage and further diminished Ghana’s hopes of a comeback at the start of the second half via a goal from Esther Mbakem-Nairo.

Laurina Fazer made it four in the 75th minute from 12 yards, sealing the win for the French side.

The Black Princesses have little time left to prepare for Costa Rica. Ghana have been drawn in Group D of the U-20 Women’s World Cup against USA, Netherlands and Japan. The competition will start on 10th August.
