The win means Ghana places third in group A, despite conceding eight goals with just a goal to savour in their previous two games.

To complete the double, Grace Asantewaa was adjudged player of the match as her excellence performance on the day won helped Ghana carry the day.

In other group A game, the host nation, France, spanked Netherland by four goals to nil to top the group.

This means France will face England while the Netherlands squares it out with Korea DPR in the next quarter-final games.
