Princesses seek win to maintain qualifying grip
5/2/2012 6:30:16 PM -
Ghana are hopeful of being in the driving seat after the first leg clash against Tunisia in the final round of qualifying for the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup.
With just two games to go, both Ghana and Tunisia are ideally placed to qualify for the World Cup and for the Black Princesses, it will be the second time in a row.
The Black Princesses play Tunisia on Saturday in the first leg match in the race to become one of Africa's two representatives for the World Cup in Japan later in August.
Robert Sackey has guided the Ghana team to this stage and says they will only be satisfied with the work done when the Black Princesses qualify.
"We are looking forward to it[the game on Saturday]," the Black Princesses coach said ahead of their departure to Tunis on Wednesday.
"The team has been working hard and we will push and fight for the 3 points and come home to finish it up."
Despite Ghana's great run in the continental qualifying campaign, Sackey explains that the sole motivation is to pick one of the qualifying slots.
"No doubt, our motivation is to get to the World Cup. And that's where we start. We have been there before.
"We will not be satisfied until we deliver. The most important thing is the delivery," he added.
The Black Princesses made their World Cup debut in the Germany 2010 U-20 Women's World Cup finals and are looking to make it a second straight appearance.
