Black Princesses presented with reward after sealing qualification to the World Cup

Kenpong Travel and Tours (KT&T) paid GHC 10,000 (about $4, 800) to the Ghana U20 women’s team as their reward for qualifying for the World Cup.

The Black Princesses had sealed qualification to the World Cup to be staged later this year in Canada with a penalty shootout win over Equatorial Guinea.

Ghana had won the game 1-0 in regulation time to cancel out the deficit suffered in the first leg clash a fortnight ago in Malabo.

The Black Princesses however had to endure the lottery of the shootouts for their inability to score more goals before an expectant crowd at the Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday.

Coach Bashir Hayford’s team however prevailed – much to the delight of many who thronged the stadium.

Kenpong Travel and Tours had earlier made a pledge to the team in the presence of Sports Minister Elvis Afriyie Ankrah before the girls trooped to the field to face Equatorial Guinea.

Consultant Kofi Poku and Media Relations Officer Mohammed Alhassan of KT&T in redeeming their pledge presented a check of GHC 10, 000 to the team moments after qualification was sealed.

The victorious team was also presented with cartons of energy drink as they were inspired to do even more at the tournament in Canada.
