Ghana coach Robert Sackey has taken full responsibility for their 4-0 defeat to USA on Monday at the FIFA U20 Women?s World Cup finals in Japan.

The Black Princesses ended the first half 1-0 down from a Linda Addai own goal but US striker Maya Hayes netted a hat-trick in the first half.

?I take the blame for our big and disappointing loss. As a Coach, I should take responsibilities for what happens to my team,? Sackey told the Ghana News Agency.

?We made too many mistakes and that cost us. We did not play to our potential and in the end, we paid for gifting all goals to the Americans whom you can clearly see were grateful for that.

?We without doubt shot ourselves in the foot by the way we played.

?We had our fair share of chances which we wasted and although we thought the referee ignored a foul on Florence Dadson which could have given us a penalty earlier in the game, we just shot ourselves in the foot.?

Ghana face early elimination if they lose to Germany on Thursday in the second Group D match.
