Abena Aidoo of Placer United’s U16 Girls 00 Gold team, was called up to the U17 Women’s Ghanaian National Team Camp as they prepare for the 2016 U17 World Cup qualifying matches in January. Placer United reached out to a Northern California Ghanaian representative so coaches could take a look at Abena and make a decision on bringing her to camp. The camp will take place in Accra, the capital and largest city of Ghana, with an estimated urban population of 2.27 million, from October 11-20.
“I am beyond blessed and grateful for this opportunity to represent my home country.” said Aidoo.
Aidoo is a 4.0 GPA sophomore student-athlete at James C. Enochs High School in Modesto. She drives three times a week to Rocklin for soccer training with Placer United.
“We are very proud of Abena and her latest call up into the Ghanaian National Team camp,” said Ron Benjamin, U16 girls coach at Placer United “She has the work rate, desire and capabilities to play at the next level. This will be a great experience for her and we wish her the best of luck.”
