Women In Sports Association [WISA] has commended the Black Princesses for winning their last Group match of the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup tournament in France.

Madam Gloria Commodore, Executive Director of WISA said in an interview that she and her group are very proud of the girls for their performance despite the challenges that bedeviled the team on its way to the tournament.

According to Mama G the girls were never disgraced because they did not get the needed preparations prior to the competition.

The Black Princesses were able to put their successive defeats behind them to beat New Zealand 1-0 in the final game and Mama G could not hide her feeling from that single victory.

“I dont think they fared badly looking at the preparation and motivation. They have done very well and we at WISA salute them, we know if all things were right the story would have been different. It was not easy watching them, but we have made our name and mark” she said.

Madam Commodore stressed that the Princesses could have scored more goals if Priscilla Adobea [striker] had made it to the tournament.

She also called on the football authorities to appoint female coaches for all the female teams as that would be better for easy communication.

She praised the media who showed the U20 World Cup and the print and radio who talked about the players.

According to Mama G, the second WISA Achievers Awards would be launched at the conference room of the Ghana Olympic Committee [GOC] on August 29, ahead of the main event at the Accra Sports Stadium on September 29, 2018.

She thanked Ghandour Cosmetics who are sponsoring the second WISA Awards where 26 sports personalities including players, journalists and administrators would be recognized and awarded.
