Dora Zuta named Head Coach of Ghana’s Female U21 National Team

The Ghana Women’s Football Strategy has, as one of its key themes, the need to build a pool of talented female footballers to feed the conveyor belt that would supply the competitive Female National Football teams. In line with this theme, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has appointed Dora Zuta as the Head Coach of the freshly established Female U21 national team.

This appointment underscores the GFA’s commitment to nurturing young talent and providing a clear pathway for progression within the country’s footballing ecosystem.

Dora Zuta brings tons of experience to her new role, having distinguished herself both as a former national team player and as a Coach holding a CAF License B Coaching certificate. Her blend of on-field expertise and coaching credentials positions her as a formidable leader for the U21 side, tasked with shaping the next generation of footballing talent in Ghana.

Assisting Zuta in her coaching endeavors will be Florence Amuzu, another former national team player whose knowledge and experience will complement Zuta’s leadership. Together, they form a dynamic coaching duo dedicated to guiding and mentoring the young female players as they navigate their footballing journey.

The establishment of the female U21 national team marks an important milestone in the GFA’s implementation of it’s Women’s Football Strategy. Designed to serve as a feeder side for both the female U23 team and the Black Queens, the U21 team provides a crucial platform for talent identification, development, and progression.

Under Zuta and Amuzu’s guidance, the U21 national team is poised to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of Women’s Football in Ghana. Their leadership will not only focus on honing the players’ skills and tactical understanding, but also instilling values of discipline, resilience, and teamwork essential for success both on and off the field.

As Ghana seeks to elevate its standing in women’s football on the global stage through the focused implementation of its Women’s Football Strategy, the appointment of Zuta and Amuzu reflects a strategic investment in youth development and talent identification. By nurturing and empowering young female players, the GFA aims to build a sustainable pipeline of talent capable of competing at the highest levels of international football.
