Ghana’s women U17 side, the Black Maidens beat their Moroccan counterparts 6-0 in the second leg of the World Cup qualifier at the Accra Sports Stadium to seal a 10-0 aggregate victory and progress to the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup in Jordan.

Two goals in the first half and four in second half were enough to earn Ghana the massive win that have qualified them for this year’s edition of the global event, which would be their fifth.

The Black Maidens have never missed out on any of the previous editions since the inception of the tournament in 2008.

Mukaramma Abdulai opened scoring in the 4th minute before Philicity Aduako made it two before the game ended for the first half.

Substitute Abdul Rahman Barikisu came from the bench to score two goals in the 63rd and 80th minute to make it four.

Captain Sandra Owusu Ansah and Grace Asantewaa fetched two other goals to complete  6-0 routing of the Moroccans.

Ghana had won the first leg in Morocco 4-0 and completing the game 6-0 means the Maidens will be in Jordan from September 30.

Nigeria and Cameroon are the other countries that will represent the continent at the tournament  which runs between September 30 and October 21.

With 7-0 on aggregate, Nigeria sent South Africa packing while Cameroon dispatched Egypt 6-1 over two legs for their debut ticket.
