Black Maidens coach Evan Adotey has expressed his disappointment after his side bowed out of the FIFA U17 World Cup after losing to Mexico on Penalties on Sunday night.
The Black Maidens lost to Mexico after Mexico’s skipper Nicole Perez cancelled Mukarama and Suzzy’s goal in a game that ended 2-2 after in regulation time.
The defeat ended the Black Maidens exceptional run in the FIFA U17 World Cup in Uruguay.
“I’m disappointed,” he said after the game. “I’m disappointed because my main target was to cross this barrier. At the press conference I did explained a lot but unfortunately I have been urged out and I have to go back and see how we prepare ahead of the next edition.”
Evan Adotey also revealed that his side prepared very well for penalties before the game but were surprised by the outcome of the shootout.
“Ghana, we started practicing on penalties because getting to this stage we knew penalties shootouts may come in. Even yesterday we practiced some shootouts but low and behold it happened again,” he said disappointingly.
