Maidens Eye Italy Scalp

Ghana’s Under-17 female football team, the Black Maidens will Thursday evening take on the Young Azzurrine of Italy at the quarter final stage of the ongoing FIFA Under-17 World Cup in Costa Rica.

The Maidens finished top of their group campaign with six points, after defeating Korea DPR and Germany, though they lost their last group match by 2-1 to Canada.

The Ghanaians must go past the Young Azzurrine if they want to match their performance in the previous edition in Azerbaijan where they placed third.
