Ghana book ticket for 2016 Fifa U17 World Cup

Ghana have qualified for the 2016 Fifa U-17 Women’s World Cup following a 6-0 thrashing of Morocco on Saturday.

The Black Maidens confirmed their place on a 10-0 aggregate, having picked up a 4-0 away victory in the North African country.

Mukarama Abdulai opened the scoring at the Accra Sports Stadium on two minutes, before Philicity Asuako added the second from the spot before recess.

Barikisu Abdul-Rahman scored twice in addition to goals from skipper Sandra Owusu-Ansah and Grace Acheampong.

Ghana will, thus, be playing in the global showpiece for the fifth consecutive time since the competition’s inception in 2008.

The West Africans join Nigeria and Cameroon as Africa’s representatives for the event which runs between September 30 and October 21 in Jordan.

Nigeria dispatched South Africa 7-0 on aggregate while Cameroon mauled Egypt 6-1 over two legs for their ticket.
