Black Maidens To Arrive Tonight...Big Welcome Planned

The Ghana Football Association together with the Ministry of Sports have called on football fans to give the bronze-winning Black Maidens a big welcome as the women's U-17 arrive in the country Monday evening.

The team will touch down at the Kotoka International Airport in Accra at 19:30 GMT (7:30pm) and fans have been called on to be at the airport and be part of the welcoming party. Winning bronze is Ghana's best-ever finish at a FIFA women’s competition and the furthest by any African side at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup.
