The Ghana Women’s U-20 team, the Black Princesses will stay in camp despite the postponement of their upcoming qualifying match for the next edition of the FIFA U-20 World Cup.

The team recently assembled at camp to prepare for a crucial match against their counterpart from Guinea Bissau in the qualifiers to the global tournament.

Unfortunately, CAF has announced that the game has been postponed because of travel restrictions in the Africa region as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.

"Due to travel restrictions across parts of Africa as a result of COVID-19, the qualifiers for the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup Costa Rica/Panama 2020 scheduled for September 2020 has been postponed. The revised fixtures for the qualifiers will be announced in due course after consultation with the various stakeholders”, a CAF statement said over the weekend.

Speaking in an interview with Asempa FM today, Communications Director of the Ghana FA, Henry Asante Twum has revealed that despite the news from CAF, the Black Princesses team will stay in camp.

“The female U20 team will remain in camp despite CAF's postponement of the upcoming match. The best thing to do is to keep them in camp amid this COVID period.

“However, this won't affect both coaches' plan in any way”, the GFA Communications Director noted.

Meanwhile, Henry Asante Twum has confirmed that 7 out of the Black Maidens and Black Princesses currently camping in Cape Coast have tested positive for the Coronavirus disease.
