West African nation Ghana have crashed out of the ongoing FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in France following the 4-0 thumping they received at the hands of Netherlands in Group A.
The victory was enough to send the female Oranje to the quarterfinals.
Fenna Kalma scored twice in addition to further strikes from Victoria Pelova and Aniek Nouwen to condemn Ghana to a second successive defeat and early elimination.
In the other group game, hosts France were held to a goalless draw by resolute New Zealand.
Forward Ariadina Borges scored in the dying moments to cancel out Manchester City star Georgia Stanway’s 11th minute penalty opener for England as both sides played out a 1-1 draw in their Group B clash.
In the other group game, the North Korean duo of Choe Kum-ok and Kim Kyong-yong scored either side of halftime to overturn Jacqueline Ovalle’s opener for Mexico and give the Asians (holders) a 2-1 win, their first victory of the tournament.
