The Black Starlets will face hosts Burkina
Faso, Ivory Coast and Sierra Leone in Group
A of this month’s WAFU B U17 tournament.
The tournament will run from 25 September to
04 October in the capital Ouagadougou. Group
B consists of three teams; Nigeria, Niger and Tunisia. WAFU Zone B is composed of Benin,
Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Niger,
Nigeria and Togo. Last year, Benin won the
tournament hosted by Togo after a 2-1 victory
over Mali in the final. The tournament is
expected to give the Ghana’s U17 team international exposure after they disqualified
from playing at this year’s African U17
Championship in Niger for fielding an overage
player against Cameroon in the final round
qualifier. Head coach Paa Kwesi Fabin has
been training with his team at the Ghanaman Soccer School of Excellence in Prampram.
