The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has expressed gratitude to the government over its decision to allow three national teams commence preparations for their respective assignments.
President Akufo-Addo announced on Sunday that the Black Maidens, Princesses and Satellites could now begin preparations for their World Cup qualifiers.
“Our female U-20 and U-17 national football teams have been given the clearance to go into their respective training camps to begin preparations towards their FIFA and CAF-sanctioned international matches, which begin in September.”
The clearance now allows the handlers of the teams to mobilise the players for camping.
Reacting to the announcement in an interview with www.ghanaweb.com Communications Director of the GFA, Henry Asante Twum, described the news as welcoming.
He said, “We are grateful to our sector minister, the Covid-19 advisory team and the President for agreeing to relax the restrictions and allow our ladies and Black Starlets to resume camping. It’s for the good of the nation. We will observe all the protocols.”
The Black Princesses will face Guinea-Bissau in September in the first round of the 2021 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup qualification.
Black Maidens will be in action in October when qualification matches for 2021 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup resume.
