The Black Princesses of Ghana will continue to remain in camp despite the postponement of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup qualifiers.

The Confederations of African Football [CAF] on Sunday announced the postponement of the qualifiers due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

The FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup qualifiers was scheduled to be played from September 3-5 for the first leg, and 10-12 September 2020 for the return leg.

However, Coronavirus outbreak forces the postponement of these games and CAF was compelled to do so in order to preserve players’ health.

“The female U-20 team [Black Princesses] team will remain in camp despite CAF's postponement of the upcoming match,” he told Asempa FM.

“The best thing to do is keep them in camp amid this COVID period.

“However, this won't affect both coaches' plan in any way,” he added.

The Princesses were billed to face Guinea-Bissau.
Meanwhile, a total of seven players have tested positive of coronavirus at the camp of the Black Maidens and the Black Princesses.

Football and other contact sports remain suspended.
