Black Queens Coach Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo says her outfit team is on course ahead of the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
The Black Queens have been in camp for the past two weeks – preparing for the crunch tie against rivals Nigeria.
Mercy Tagoe gave an update on the team’s preparedness and said six players from champions Hasaacas Ladies have yet to report to camp due to their participation in the maiden edition of the CAF Women’s champions League in Abidjan.
“Absolutely, some of the players are with Hasaacas Ladies who have qualified for the CAF Champions league: the WAFU B Qualifiers in Ivory Coast so I left them to travel. Some were also invited by the U-20 who have very close assignment and I have to let them go. We are doing some additions and subtractions gradually but it’s too early for me to add more players because those in camp now are not doing badly at all so were are on course.”
According to her, the Black Queens have received a boost following the arrival of two foreign-based players, Grace Asantewaa (Spain) and Princella Adubea (Spain).
She added that more foreign-based players will be handed invitations.
“At least a month to the time, we are now in July so let’s wait and see somewhere after August because our match is in October so by the close of August, I believe they will be available for invitation.”
Ghana is scheduled to take on the Super Falcons of Nigeria in two qualifying matches in October 2021 and February 2022 for a ticket to the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco.
