Kwasi Nyantakyi has re-enforced his declaration that Ghana will conquer Africa in women’s football in the next two years.
The Ghana FA boss had made this categorical statement last month ahead of Ghana’s participation at both the U-20 and U-17 women’s World Cup in Germany and Azerbaijan respectively.
And though the Black Princesses were woeful in their campaign in Germany, the Black Maidens restored pride by winning an historical bronze medal in Azerbaijan.
The U-17 girls were accorded a ruptrous reception upon their return on Monday night where the Ghana FA boss restated his position on the women’s game.
“Their (Black Maidens) performance was historic because this is the first time a women’s team have won a medal at the World Cup,” Nyantakyi said.
“I on behalf of the Ghana FA want to officially welcome you back home.
“With this performance I am very confident that in the next two years, Ghana will conquer Africa.
“Some of you will be promoted to the Black Princesses and other will be promoted to the senior team.
“We will not only conquer at the junior level but also at senior level and subsequently at the World Cup.”
