Evans Adotey Savours Ghana’s Passage To Last Eight

Ghana coach Augustine Evans Adotey says his team fulfilled another objective by reaching the quarter-finals at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup.

The Black Maidens beat Germany 1-0 in Group B on Tuesday advance in the competition even before their final group game with Canada on Saturday.

A first half goal by Gladys Amfobea against the European champions secured Ghana a second-straight win after defeating Korea DPR 2-0 in the opening group match.

“I’m highly excited because my dream has come true,” Evans Adotey said. I needed a first win against Korea and a second win against Germany, so I am excited.”

The Germans enjoyed much possession and were denied by the excellent Azume Adams in goal for Ghana.

However, for Adotey his side got the goal that made the difference.

“In terms of ball possession and attacking play I will give credit to the opposition, they played to the standard required but fortunately for me we got the goal. They didn’t do badly but they lost.

“At the end of the game, the result matters,” said the Black Maidens coach.
