General captain of the Black Princesses, Mukarama Abdulai, says the team’s friendly game against France will be a good test for them ahead of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.

With less than a month until the start of the tournament which will be staged in Costa Rica, Ghana’s team are in France as they wrap up their preparations for the showpiece.

Their camping in France will see them play a friendly game against Les Bleues on Friday, July 29, 2022 at 14:00 GMT, a game the former Black Maidens skipper is certain will be a good test for the team.

“[After travelling from Accra to Paris] the girls put in so much effort. The game is going to be a big test and it is a good thing we get to play to see how our preparation has been from Prampram to a different environment. It’s going to be a big task,” she said.

“I think we are ready and I think we will do our best [because] and this game is actually going to show we are prepared for the World Cup. I am happy we get to play this game. International friendly is an important of our preparations. It’s even a big part of the preparations. I think we are all happy that we are getting to play at least this friendly [vs France] before the World Cup.”

Mukarama also asked Ghanaians to support the team as they seek another bid to make the nation proud on the world stage.

“[They] should keep pushing their support behind us. They should always put their prayers behind us [because] we need it. Without them, we can’t do it alone,” she added.

Ben Fokuo’s side aims to make it out of the group stage for the first time after failing in all the previous five attempts.
