Ghana’s U-17 female national team, the Black Maidens, on Tuesday 13 November 2018, defeated their Uruguayan counterparts 5-0 in the ongoing U-17 Women World Cup Tournament in Uruguay.
Ghana’s victory over her football rivals Uruguay was initiated by skipper Mukarama Abdulai, who earned a hat-trick in their opening match against the host nation.
The Black Maidens opened scoring in the 20th minute through Fuseina Mumuni, while talented captain Abdulai extended Ghana’s lead five minutes later, but the home side stood resolute to defend the incessant attacks before the break.
However, they were not able to stop the Africans, when Millot Pokuaa made it 3-0 on 66th minute and 12 minutes later Abdulai extended the lead.
The captain sealed her hat-trick in injury time to give Ghana the biggest win so far in the tournament.
Ghanaians have yet to put behind them the goal bound ball which Luis Suarez parried from the post in the quarter final match between Ghana and Uruguay during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
Abdullai is expected to lead the team again on Friday when they take on Finland in the second match of Group A.
