Head coach of Algeria’s female U-20 team, Azzedine Chih, has mentioned that Ghana are strong and are favourites to progress to the next round of the African qualifiers to the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup to be held in France next year.
According Chih who doubles as the Technical Manager of all women’s national teams, Ghana are considered one of the heavyweights in women’s football in Africa but remains upbeat about their chances.
“In all aspects; physical, technical and tactical, Ghana are the favourites. They (Ghana) are used to playing at this level, whilst it will be the first for our girls.” Chih was quoted by the Algeria Football Federation website.
“The match will provide our players to discover African football and also rub shoulders with experienced teams.
“However, playing against Ghana does not create any complex, either for the technical team or the players.”
The highly anticipated first leg encounter is slated for Friday, 15 September, 2017 in Algiers.
