2023 African Games: Black Princesses were eager to make fans proud – Yusif Basigi

Yusif Basigi, the head coach of Ghana’s U20 women’s national team, the Black Princesses, has revealed that his ladies were eager to make fans proud that is why they played their 2023 African Games semifinal match against Senegal with extra motivation.

The Black Princesses picked a commanding 3-1 win over Senegal at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium on Monday night to set up a final showdown with Nigeria.

Speaking after the game, Basigi said his players were thrilled to see a sizeable crowd at the game.

“With the fans around they were so enthused to do a lot to also make them happy. I told them they cannot disappoint their fans so they have to win.”

In the game, Tracey Twum gave Ghana the lead after just 18 minutes before Ophelia Serwaa Amponsah doubled the lead on the stroke of halftime.

The Teranga Lionesses were given a lifeline minutes into the second half as they scored from the penalty spot.

The two-goal lead was restored shortly for Yusif Basigi’s side with Amponsah scoring from a rebound to record a brace in the game.

Ghana will now face Nigeria in the final on Thursday.
