Black Maidens skipper Mukarama Abdulai has received her Adidas Golden Boot (top-scorer) and Bronze Ball (third best player) which she won at the 2018 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Uruguay in a short ceremony held today (February 19, 2019).

She was adjudged the highest goal scorer of the tournament and named the third best player after a sterling performance which led her team to the quarter finals of the tournament.

Ghana faced Mexico in the quarter final stage of the competition in Montevideo on Sunday, November 25, 2018.

The 2018 FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup held in Uruguay was Ghana’s fourth successive appearance at the world stage and the first for Mukarama who scored 7 goals at the end of the tournament making her the top scorer of the tournament.

With the total number of goals in her net, Mukarama could have been adjudged the best player of the tournament if the Black Maidens had progressed further to the finals.
