The Black Princesses were on fire once again, as they thrashed their counterparts from North Africa in the World Cup qualifiers on Sunday

Ghana's female U20 side humiliated Algeria 5-0 in the second leg of the 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifiers at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The Black Princesses completed their demolition exercise in a fashionable style to make it to the next round of the qualifiers.

Head coach Yussif Basigi paraded a strong XI even with goal advantage from the first leg. Goalkeeper Martha Annan maintained her place in the post and Gladys Amfobea, Justice Tweneboah, Blessing Agbomadzi as well as Felicity Asuako made up the defence.

Grace Asantewa, Oliver Amoako, Helena Obeng and Rafia Kulchiri Alhassan controlled the midfield with Vivian Adjei Konadu and Priscilla Adobea leading the attack.

The Princesses missed a couple of chances in the opening 30 minutes but Adubea made amends and opened the scoring by the 44th minute after she latched onto a pass from her teammate. Helena Obeng added another goal in additional time to make it 2-0 for the hosts before the break.

Although, Algeria doubled their efforts in the second half, and were able to keep Ghana at bay at a point, Philicity Asuako found a breach in their defence on the 63rd minute to register her name on the scoresheet before Vivian Adjei Konadu added another goal two minutes later.

Grace Asantewaa, who netted twice in the first leg, made it 5-0 for Ghana by the 90th minute.

Ghana will now lock horns with Kenya in the penultimate round in November, after the East African country defeated Ethiopia 4-3 on aggregate.
