The win guarantees Ghana a place at the next U-17 Women's World Cup to hold in Uruguay in November/December.

Impressively, the Maidens have qualified for every single edition of the tournament since its inception in 2008.

Their best performance was a third-place finish at Azerbaijan 2012.

Elsewhere, Nigeria will be absent at the tournament for the first time ever after falling to Cameroon on away goals following a 3-3 aggregate, while South Africa beat Morocco to claimed Africa's last ticket.
