LIVE UPDATES: France vs Ghana (U-20 Women’s World Cup)

The Black Princesses of Ghana kick off their 2018 FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup with a game against hosts France and we’ll be bringing you live updates of the game.

Preparations for this tournament have been negatively affected by the stand-off between the liaison team and GFA with plans of a training tour being scrapped at the last minute.

The French, on the other hand, has enjoyed excellent preparations, winning all of their pre-tournament friendlies.

That notwithstanding, the Princesses are buoyant of victory tonight against the side they drew with two years ago.

The Princesses, making their fifth World Cup appearance, have never gone past the group stage and are hoping to improve upon that record, but must first clear a cagey France hurdle.

Ghanaian football legend Michael Essien has visited the ladies ahead of their game in what is expected to be a morale booster for the team.

Coach Yusif Basigi has already announced his starting XI, with all the usual suspects being present.

Ghana’s line up
Goalkeeper: Martha Annan

Defenders: Justice Annan, Philicity Asuako, Blessing Agbomadzi, Linda Amoako

Midfielders: Ernestina Abambila, Rafia Alhassan, Kate Agyeman, Grace Acheampong
