Facing the hosts in their opening game, our ladies were unfazed and spanked Uruguay by an impressive 5-0 scoreline.
Ably headed by coach Adotey, the young ladies were impressive all game, dominating and completely overawing the Uruguayan team who could not handle the pace, power and trickery of Ghana’s Black Maidens.
Captain Mukarama Abdulai hit a hattrick, with Fuseina Mumuni and Millot Pokuaa providing the other goals.
The game provided Ghana with an impressive opening win, sending her top of Group A ahead of New Zealand, who beat Finland 1-0 in the other group game.
