Black Princesses, coached by Ben Fukuo, will play a number of warm-up games, including one against the France U-20 team before heading to Costa Rica for the start of the World Cup.

‘’Since we started preparations about five weeks ago, the girls have been doing well in training and giving off their best. They put up a good performance in the training matches and it shows they are ready for the tournament ahead,” Fokuo told ghanafa.org.

“We will be leaving for France to play an international friendly and have our final preparations before we leave for Costa Rica for the tournament. It will be a good test for the team ahead of the tournament.

‘’The girls are eager to give everything to raise the flag of Ghana high and go far in this competition.

“Everybody is happy and ready for the game against France as it will help strengthen the team. The girls are ready to work hard for the target we have set for ourselves as a team.

“We need the support of Ghanaians as we embark on our sixth consecutive World Cup appearance,” he added.
