Ghana female Under-17 coach Augustine Evans Adotey is unsure about his future following his side’s exit from the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup.

The Black Stars Maidens were robbed of a semi-final spot after losing 4-3 on penalties to Italy last Thursday.

Japanese referee Fusako Kajiyama was at the centre of the controversy with some outrageous decisions which robbed the Africans of victory.

The Ghana FA is expected to evaluate the performance of the former Medeama trainer before deciding on his long-term future.

He is however says he is be ready for any decision.

“I can’t say anything about my future. My future lies in the hands of the Ghana FA,” he said

“They (FA) must decide whether to allow me to continue or not. If they ask me to stay, I will be glad.

“But if they decide otherwise, I will accept and move on. Everybody saw our performance and so I leave that to the FA to judge.”

The Black Maidens managed wins over Korea DPR and Germany before falling to Canada in their group games.

They subsequently lost their quarter-final game against Italy who were beaten 2-0 by Spain in Monday’s second semi-final game.
