Black Maidens skipper Sandy Owusu Ansah has revealed her tournament target at this year’s FIFA U-17 Women’s championship which is scheduled to kick off this weekend.

According to Sandra her target is to win the championships’ top scorer award. She also applauded the management’s decision to fly the team to Jordan a week to the tournament.

“Training has gone on very well for us in Jordan and it has really helped because we are now used to the weather conditions here,” the Ghana skipper told the Ghana FA’s website.

“For us, as a team our collective objective is to do better than the 2012 squad that won bronze. We want to qualify from the group stage and focus on finishing as winners or at least runners up at the tournament. 

“Just as I scored that goal to win a best player award two years ago, this year I am targeting to score more and hopefully emerge as top scorer of tournament.”

Sandra also called for the support of all Ghanaians as the team goes into their opening match against defending champions Japan on Saturday October 1.

“We know the Japanese are good at possessing the ball so our strategy against them in the opening match will be to defend very well and keep the ball away from them,”

Ghana’s U-17 female side will open their World Cup campaign at the Prince Mohammed International in Al Zarqa on Saturday.

Sandra was part of Ghana’s team that lost on penalties to Italy in the quarter finals in 2014.
