FIFA U-20 Women’s WCQ: Ghana qualify for sixth successive World Cup
Ghana beat Ethiopia 2-1 on Sunday to reach the 2022 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup to be staged in Costa Rica, sealing a 5-1 aggregate score after a 3-0 first leg win in Addis Ababa.
The Black Princesses reach their sixth successive World Cup as target woman Salamtu Abdulai netted a brace to make it four goals against Ethiopia in the two-legged tie.
The Princesses took the lead as early as in the second minute when Salamatu connected to pass with a great run to open the scoring at the Accra Sports Stadium.
After 25 minutes, Abdulai slotted a low shot past the Ethiopia from inside the box after being put through once again by Ceceilia Nyama.
Before the half hour mark, the Ethiopians pulled one back but the Black Princesses kept their composure to secure one of Africa’s three slots and will join 15 other countries for this year’s tournament in Costa Rica.
The tournament will run from 10–28 August in two cities San José and Alajuela.
