Ghana’s Black Maidens Banned And Fined $100,000 For Age-Cheating

The World Football Governing body, International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) has placed a ban on Ghana’s Black Madiens (U-17) and a fine of $100,00 for suspected age-cheating.

This means Ghana will not participate in the next two editions of the FIFA U-17 Women’s African qualifiers.

This occurred after Morocco filed a protest against the Black Maidens, claiming that Nancy Amoh and Rasheeda Shahadu had used ages below 17 but the North Afriacan said they were older than the said age.

Morocco secured a place in the 2022 U-17 Women’s World Cup after defeating Ghana 5-4 on penalties in the return leg.

They lost 2-0 in Ghana and replicated same in Rabat to make it 2-2 on aggregate.

The CAF Disciplinary Board was offered the chance to hear the Ghana Football Association’s appeal of the decision; however, they declined to do so.
