GFA CAF0

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) have postponed September’s FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Costa Rica/Panama 2020 qualifiers due to travel restrictions across parts of Africa as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This was revealed in a statement by CAF which revealed that an alternate date for the qualifiers would be announced soon “The revised fixtures for the qualifiers will be announced in due course after consultation with the various stakeholders.”

The First Round first leg was initially fixed for 3rd-5th September 2020 with the return leg from 10th-12th September 2020.

This means 31-member provisional Ghana’s U-20 Women’s team (the Black Princesses) called up by Head Coach Yusif Basigi who reported to camp at the Cape Coast Stadium on Friday 14th August 2020 may have to break camp until the qualifiers are rescheduled.

The team was preparing to face on Guinea-Bissau on 4th September 2020 and may be left disappointed as this is the second time the clash has been postponed the first coming back in March.

The statement also revealed that CAF “is monitoring the situation closely and working with the relevant authorities with regards to hosting of the matches, and will make pronouncements accordingly in the event of developments that will affect playing a match at the designated venue.”

Two teams will qualify to represent Africa at the final tournament from 20 January – 6 February 2021 in Costa Rica and Panama.
