Ghana’s female U20 national team, the Black Princesses are wrapping up preparations in Australia for the U20 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Papua New Guinea.
The young ladies left Ghana for Australia on Monday and arrived safely in Cairns after a long journey. They are based at Cairns Colonial Club Resort.
The team has held three training sessions so far including one low profile match yesterday in a modified game of 20×4 minutes.
The Princesses recorded a cricket scoreline with each Princess playing 40 minutes minimum and 80 maximum.
“The objective was to assess the endurance and mental toughness under the difficult condition. This was after we had an hour-long high intensity session,” head coach, Didi Dramani explained.
The Princesses will play two more matches on Saturday with South IDE and on Tuesday with JRC Strikers.
The team will then depart on the 10th to Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea.
