Ghana’s Under-17 female team are expected to embark on a training tour of Brazil ahead of the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup next month, GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.

The Ghanaian side have opted to abandon their impending trip to the US after thirteen (13) players and team officials were denied entry visas by the America embassy in Accra, officials have informed Ghana’s leading football outlet.

GHANAsoccernet.com can reveal that officials are weighing up the option of sending the team to Brazil –which has a similar weather conditions to that of Costa Rica.

Coach Evans Augustine Adotey has been trimming the rough edges of his team at the Accra sports stadium after completing a six-day training tour of the Western Region last week.

The Ghanaian trainer is however sweating over the fitness of a number of his key players with as many seven suffering from various degrees of injuries.

Goalkeeper Rita Gyasi, Priscilla Adubea, Laadi Issaka, Jemima Dussey,  Olivia Anokye, Belinda Anane and Vida Opoku could all be ruled out of the tournament with fitness problems.

The West Africans are hoping to improve on their historic bronze winning feat at the last edition in Azerbaijan two years ago.

Ghana will play against Germany, Canada and South Korea.
