The Ghana Black Maidens arrived to a cheering crowd on Wednesday at the Kotoko airpot in Accra after their FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup tournament in Uruguay.
Fans came to welcome the young team who exited the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup after losing to Mexico in the quartel-final stage on penalties.
The team were accompanied by technical team and officials of the National Sports Authority including acting Director General Majeed Bawa.
Black Maidens captain Mukarama Abdulai received the most attention for her splendid display at the tournament where she scored 7 goals in just 4 games. In doing so she broke Jane Ayieyam’s record of the most goals scored by a Ghanaian at the competition set back in 2012.
