Black Maidens

FIFA Bans Ghana Under-17 Women’s Team For Age Cheating

on

Ghana have been banned from competing in the next two editions of the FIFA U17 Women’s African Qualifiers and fined $100,000.

This is after a Moroccan protest that Nancy Amoh and Rasheeda Shahadu falsified their birthdate information and are above U17.

The Black Maidens played a two-legged qualifier against Morocco and lost, but the Moroccans who filed the protest after the first leg in Accra, have been declared winners and will represent Africa at the tournament slated for India from 11th October to 30th October 2022.
