Ghana U20 women's coach Yusif Basigi has called up 30 players for an international friendly with Morocco in Accra.

The Black Princesses will face the Atlas Lionesses for the second time this year following an initial meeting in Morocco in preparations for their U20 Women's World Cup qualifying matches.

At the Mohammed VI Stadium, goals from Milot Pokuaa and Faustina Akpor could not save Basigi's ladies from defeat as they threw away a goal lead to lose 3-2 to their hosts in Casablanca.

After strikes from Ghizaine Chebbak, Ouinekh Hanane and Hanane Ait El Haj gave the Moroccans a comeback win, coach Basigi will hope his side's profit from their home advantage this term.
