FIFA 2022 U-20 Women’s World Cup: USA thrash Ghana 3-0 in Group D opening match

It was not a good start for the stars of Ghana as they were being thrashed 3-0 by United States of America, in their opening Group D match at the 2022 FIFA U-20 women’s World Cup in Costa Rica.

Aside suffering a disappointing opening day defeat Ghana had a player sent off early in the game.

USA broke the deadlock in the 11th thanks to skipper Michelle Cooper.


Things went from bad to worse for Ghana in the 31st minute, as Jacqueline Owusu was sent off after a foul on midfielder Korbin Albert following consultations with VAR.

The USA capitalized on the sending off and doubled their lead in the 38th minute thanks to Alyssa Thompson.

And in the 52nd minute USA got a third goal this time off the boot of Ally Sentnor.

Up next for Ghana is a tough clash with defending champions Japan billed for Sunday, 14 August while USA will face the Netherlands.

Meanwhile, Africa’s other representative Falconets of Nigeria will open their campaign against France in the early hours of Friday (12am).
