The Ghana national U-17 female team, the Black Maidens has been slapped with two-year ban by the football governing body in Africa, CAF. The ban will see the Black Maidens miss the next two editions of the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup African Qualifiers.

The West African side has also been fined a sum of one hundred thousand US dollars ($100,000).

The ban is as a result of Morocco’s protest that Nancy Amoh and Rasheeda Shahadu falsified their birthdate information and are above 17 years.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) had the chance to defend themselves against the claims in question by providing the Caf Disciplinary Board with a written response but failed to do anything.

However, GFA still have the chance to appeal the decision before the Caf Appeal Board.

The Black Maidens won 2-0 in the first leg with goals from Nancy Amoh and Stella Nyamekye in Accra.

Morocco also won 2-0 in the return leg in Rabat to force penalties that the latter won 4-2 to qualify for the 2022 Fifa U-17 Women’s World Cup in India.
