Head Coach of the national U17 female team the Black Maidens, Evans Adotey says the team won’t be complacent ahead of the second leg encounter of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Djibouti, and believes Ghanains will expect another mauling from his side.

The Black Maidens thrashed the Djibouti under-17 female team 9-0 in the first leg of the World Cup qualifiers, and will square up with the same opponents in the second leg in Cape Coast in a fortnight time.

Following the arrival of the team in Ghana, Coach Evans Adotey indicated they won’t underestimate their opponents as he seeks to make history with his side.

“We have two weeks ahead, and we have some corrections and rehearsals to make and that will tell the philosophy for the second leg. We just don’t have to be complacent,” he told the media on their arrival.

“If we scored 9 away goals, Ghanaian will expect us to score more, if we did not concede any goal, Ghanaians will expect us to keep another clean sheet and so we won’t say we scored nine so we will relax, we have to go all out,” he added.

“We have an eye on making a record, following the 9-0 victory, we want to record a heavy score line here in Ghana,” he concluded.

The Black Maidens look set to make another World Cup appearance following the 9-0 win in Djibouti.

Ghana made it to the quarter finals of the last edition but will be hoping to go a step forward in Uruguay, with qualification almost secured.
