Ghana coach Mas-ud Dramani admits his side must double up efforts to beat Japan on Friday in the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup quarter-final clash.
The Black Maidens will be facing their second Asian opponent at the tournament after dispatching China 2-0 last Sunday.
Japan’s Little Nadeshiko were one of the best sides from the Group stage after scoring 17 goals without conceding.
But Dramani believes his side can shock the favourites.
“I think the Japan side is technically good, but this doesn’t mean they don’t have weaknesses,” Dramani said.
”They have been fortunate not to play sides that look so strong, such as the likes of a Germany, China or Ghana, but I think we’ve gone through that process and we’re very ready for the Japan game. We’re composed and I think we’ll be ok.”
