CHAIRMAN of the Fifa Under-20 Women’s World Cup executive committee Sonia Bien-Aime says Papua New Guinea has been a wonderful host for the tournament.
The 44-year-old Turks and Caicos islander thanked the PNG government for supporting the tournament and Papua New Guineans for being  wonderful hosts to the 16 participating countries.
“It is hard to believe the tournament is coming to an end. It has been a great tournament for the past two and half weeks,” Bien-Aime said.
“People have been friendly and very good hosts, thank you,” she said.
Bien-Aime said the tournament would leave a legacy in PNG.
She said PNG had proven that it could host major tournaments and it was an important gain for women football in the country.
