A statement issued yesterday said the feat chalked up by the women had excited the entire nation and signified a resurgence of women football.
Ghana beat their Congolese counterparts 2-0 in Kinshasa over the weekend and will book a place at the World Cup if they win the second leg.
"Your heart-warming victory over the Democratic Republic of Congo in far away Kinshasa has indeed brought it home to all of us how serious you are as Ghana's representatives in international sports, and we believe it will not be' long before you also carve Ghana's name with pride.
"There is no doubt, Princesses, that you will endeavour still to do well to win the second leg just as convincingly, on home soil, to qualify for the 2010 Women's World Cup in Germany, where Ghana expects you to emulate the Black Satellites and others.
" The minister assured the handlers and players of the ministry and government support throughout the campaign, and expressed the "hope that the whole of Ghana will stand solidly behind you as you make this first appearance on the world scene with your own special skills and talents to add something more to our nation's glory;" the statement said.
