U-20 WWC: Black Princess draw 2-2 with France

The Black Princess were dealt with a late blow Thursday morning as they settled for a 2-2 draw with France in their second game at the ongoing Fifa U-20 Women’s World Cup in Papua New Guinea.

Ghana conceded first on the half-hour mark through Delphine Cascarino before striker Sandra Owusu Ansah pegged back just on the stroke of half time.

Jane Ayieyam then gave the coach Mas-Ud Dramani girls a 2-1 lead 20 minutes into second half. The Black Princess took control of the game and went ahead to win a penalty in the 82nd minute but Samira Abdul Rahman failed to capitalize on the opportunity to extend Ghana’s lead as she saw her kick parried away by the French goalkeeper.

The French handed Ghana a sucker punch with an equalizer deep into added time as substitute Clara Mateo pulled an excellent header to put the score at 2-2.

The Black Princess now place third in the Group C with just a point and will next face the USA on Monday, November 21, 2016.
