Black Maidens coach Evans Adotey has lauded the exploits of captain Sandra Owusu-Ansah following his side's qualification into the quarter finals of the ongoing FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Jordan.

The West African side booked their ticket to the next stage of the competition after beating Paraguay 1-0 in the final game in Group D thanks to Owusu-Ansah’s 25 yard volley.

Adotey has heap praises on his captain for her performances in the ongoing championship, as she has scored two goals in three games.

“Sandra, our captain, can score goals from all over the pitch and she showed that again today. I’m very proud of her,” Adotey said after the game.

Though Ghana won the game, they were given a good run for their money by the South American side who prior to the game have shipped in 11 goals. But the Ghanaian coach has indicated that he knew it wouldn’t be an easy game for his side.

“We had a poor start to this tournament, but we recovered and we’ve managed to pick up six points in a really tough group and qualify for the quarter-finals. This is a great achievement for us. My job has consisted of mentally preparing and encouraging my players. We knew Paraguay would be difficult opponents because, although they’d had two heavy defeats, they were going to come out and try to end the tournament on a positive note. And so it wasn’t all that surprising for us that at half time the score was still 0-0.”

Ghana will play Korea DPR in the quarter finals, and Adotey says his charges are ready for the Asians.

“I still don’t have any information about Korea DPR, the team we’re facing in the quarters, but as they finished top of Group C, we’ll clearly have to be well-prepared,” he concluded.
