Maidens Goalkeeper Azume Thrilled To Bag Award
Goalkeeper Azume Adams was voted the ‘Live Your Goals Player of the match’ in Ghana’s 1-0 win against Germany at the U-17 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Adams had an incredible influence on the outcome of the victory on Tuesday and though thrilled, she says she wasn’t surprised.
“I am not surprised. I knew that by the grace of God, I would win something more than this,” the Ghana goalkeeper said.
She now joins Sandra Owusu Ansah as the only recipients from Ghana’s opening two games in Group B.
Ghana are through to the next stage of the competition with Adams having kept two clean sheets.
“We planned and I know we can do something more than that. I am happy about it,” she said.
“We want to have goals so we need to score more goals [against Canada]. We need to take this Cup to Ghana.”
