Black Maidens Miss Out On FIFA U17 World Cup Semi-Final


Ghana collapsed in the final minute of injury time to lose 2-1 to Korea DPR to miss out on a semi-final berth at the 2016 FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup final.

Substitute Ja Un Yong connected home on the 94th-minute mark after the Ghana defence failed to clear a free-kick flighted into the box.

Yong poked in clincher from close range as the Black Maidens were made to pay dearly.

Korea DPR scored first in the 31st minute from the penalty spot after Grace Acheampong was adjudged to have fouled Pyon Un Gong and Kim Po Ui made no mistake from the spot.

But Ghana persevered and equalized nine minutes from time through Gifty Acheampong who nipped in to glance a delicate header past Ok Kum Ju.

This was after Philicity Asuako had lofted the ball into the Korea DPR box with an acrobatic overhead kick
