Ghana, on Sunday, shredded Djibouti 19-0 on aggregate to book their spot at the finals of the Fifa U-17 Women’s World Cup set for Uruguay later this year.
The Black Maidens had all but secured their qualification heading into the second leg after a 9-0 first-leg victory, and they were able to better that performance by one goal and stroll to qualification for Uruguay 2018.
Skipper Mukarama Abdulai bagged a hat-trick with Fuseina Mumuni scoring to give Ghana a 4-0 lead at halftime.
The Maidens then registered six second half goals courtesy a brace from Nina Norshie, one each from Victoria Teye, Barikisu Rahman, Azumah Bugre and a personal 4th on the day from Mukarama who emerges the top scorer of the African qualifiers with 12 goals.
Ghana are joined by South Africa, who secured their berth after a 6-1 aggregate win over Morocco on Saturday and also Cameroon, who edged Nigeria 3-3 on away goals, as the three African teams at Uruguay 2018.
The Fifa U-17 Women’s World Cup Uruguay 2018 will be held from 13 November to 1 December across three host cities: Colonia del Sacramento, Maldonado and Montevideo.
