Ghana’s coach, Yusif Basigi, says he is disappointed with the officiating after his charges drew 1-1  with Cameroon in the final round of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup qualifiers.

The Black Princesses came back from a goal down to draw level in the second half.

Striker Princella Adubea scored to give the visitors a decent first leg result.

The Princesses are closer to booking a place in this year’s U-20 Women’s World Cup that will be staged in France after scoring an away goal, and this result will give them the advantage going into the second leg.

“Officiating wasn’t the best on Sunday. The referee was clearly out there to help the Cameroonians but my girls did their best.

“The scoreline isn’t the best but I strongly believe we will qualify to France,” Basigi said.

The return leg of the qualifier will come off on Sunday, 28th January at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium in Ghana.
