Ghana has lined up two friendly matches as part of preparations for the 2016 FIFA Female World Cup which will be played in Jordan from September 30- October 21.
The Black Maidens who arrived in Amman on Wednesday afternoon will take on Cameroon today and a Jordanian select side ahead of their opening game against Japan next Saturday.
In an interview with Ghanafa.org, Head Coach Augustine Evans Adotey the two friendly games and announced the team will hold two training sessions on Thursday.
“Our initial plan to travel to Germany for a pre-tournament tour could not happen so the FA decided to let us come straight to Jordan and train ahead of the competition”.
“So our arrival in Jordan on Wednesday morning, we gave the players a free day to rest, recover and have some treatments”.
“We have lined up series of training programmes beginning with two training sessions on Thursday and we will play Cameroon in a friendly on Friday. The friendly was pre-arranged so they will arrive in Jordan tonight. We will also play a select side here in Amman on Sunday”, Coach Adotey said.
On his targets, the Black Maidens Coach stated that “My first target is to ensure that we prevent a defeat against Japan in the opening game and start the competition on a good note”.
Ghana is in Group D of the tournament and will face defending Champions Japan, USA and Paraguay.
