WAFU U20 GIRLS: Basigi pledges good football and win against Ivory Coast

Black Princesses gaffer Yusif Basigi has pledged to play good football and win handsomely against Ivory Coast in their final group game on Saturday in the ongoing WAFU Zone B U20 Girls Tournament.

Ghana defeated Benin 3-0 in the opening match of the WAFU B U-20 Girls Cup at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

Maafia Nyame, Mary Amponsah, and Stella Nyamekye got on target for the Princesses to make a brilliant start to the campaign.

“We are ready and we want to take it game after game. We want to give Ghanaians good football and good results,’’ Basigi told ghanafa.org.

”We don’t have any injury concern so every player is ready. We have been training to keep in shape. Getting all maximum points will take us top of the group and hopefully we will build on our performance last week. We want to make it to the finals and hopefully win the cup for Ghanaians,”

“ I always urge people to come and support the girls because they need it to go far in the competition,”
