Ghanaian businessman Samson Deen has pledged to pay a special bonus to the Ghana U20 women’s team once they seal qualification to the World Cup on Sunday.

The Black Princesses will be hosting Equatorial Guinea in the second leg of the World Cup qualifier at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Ghana needs to overturn a 1-0 deficit suffered in the first leg in order to qualifier for this year’s finals to be staged in Canada.

The team were given a timely boost when the Executive Chairman of African Origin Group Samson Deen paid them a visit at the Mariset Hotel on Friday night.

Deen donated cartons of energy drink and water much to the excitement of the playing body and coaches.

He then pledged to give each player of the team a $100 bonus once they beat Equatorial Guinea and seal qualification to the World Cup on Sunday.

“This is a World Cup year and Ghana must be represented in all the editions – be it for male or female,” he said during the presentation.

“I have in my own small way decided to give each and every player a token of $100 once qualification is sealed on Sunday.

“By this gesture, I call on other well meaning Ghanaians and corporate bodies to also help in motivating the team before, during and after Sunday’s match.

“I also call on the supporters to attend the game in their numbers on Sunday to provide the needed support for the team.”

Acting Ghana FA boss George Afriyie and Ghana FA Executive Committee member Osei-Tutu Agyemang were amongst officials present to take delivery of the items.

“This is unprecedented and we will want to express our appreciation to Samson Deen and his team for making this donation,” Afriyie said.

“It doesn’t happen often with women’s football and we will like to thank him for this gesture and urge others to follow this example.”
