Ghana seals FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup place after thrashing South Africa 5-1

Ghana beat South Africa 5-1 to pick up the first African qualifying ticket to the 2012 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup on Friday.

Alberta Yao’s hat-trick and a brace in the second half strike by captain Priscilla Okyere were enough to undo the opener by South Africa’s Mosili Makhoali.

Ghana, thus make it a third straight qualification to the World Cup.

The two other qualifying slots from the continent will be decided after the ties between Tunisia and Gambia; and Zambia and Nigeria this weekend.
