Ghana's female Under-17 team, the Black Maidens will make another appearance at the FIFA U-17 Women World Cup after thrashing Djibouti 10-0 in Cape Coast on Sunday. 

Captain and forward Abdulai Mukarama produced another stunning performance, scoring four times as she did in Djibouti to set the game for another goal galore.

The Black Maidens having beaten their opponent 9-0 in the first leg were sure of qualification but left no stone unturned as they established their dominance in women football at that level.

Strike partner of Mukarama, Nina Norshie scored a brace with Fuseina Mumuni, Azuma Bugurie, Barkisu Rahman and Victoria Teye scoring the others.

The girls qualified 19-0 on aggregate and will travel to Uruguay for the World Cup later this year.

The Maidens reach the quarter finals two years ago in Jordan and are the only Ghanaian female team to win a medal at the World Cup after finishing third in Azerbaijan in 2012.
