Ghana earned a vital away point in the first leg of the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup qualifiers when they settled for a 2 all draw against their Ethiopian counterparts on Saturday at Addis Ababa, the capital city of Ethiopia.
The hosts gifted Ghana the opener in the 5th minute through an own goal scored by Hassabi Muso in the 5th minute, before Loza Abera snatched the equalizer for Ethiopia in the 16 minute.
Abera went onto the score sheet again in the 22th minute to put Ethiopia in the lead this time around.
But back from recess Coach Mas-ud Didi Dramani’s charges put up a rare fight to get the equalizer through Kate Adu Agyemang in the 80th minute.
Ghana will host Ethiopia in the return leg in a fortnight’s time and the side that will be better in terms of head to head after the two legs will book their ticket to the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup to be staged in Papua New Guinea.
The return leg game has been scheduled for the Baba Yara Stadium, Kumasi.
