Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo made this know in her post-match interview after leading her charges to a 2-0 win victory over the Atlas Lionesses of Morocco at the Accra Sports Stadium.
“This is a very important training match for us, considering the fact that we have been at home because of Covid-19 for all these months
We started very well by going to Turkey with … after thinking that we are going to continue then from nowhere Covid came in and everything thing went to square one.
So getting such an international friendly is really a motivating factor for us. I’m praying that it will continue now that we have the opportunity to continue to play, I pray that we will have the more of such important training matches to keep the girls fit.”
Ghana’s Black Queens on Monday, handed the Atlas Lionesses of Morocco their second defeat on the spin with a Sandra Owusu Ansah inspired win in an international friendly at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The Ghana forward scored two goals on the evening to give Ghana a two-nil win. She put Ghana in front in the 10th minute flummoxing goalkeeper, Errnichi Khadija who had earlier made some jaw-dropping saves.
Priscilla Okyere volleyed over in the 14th minute and Sandra Owusu Ansah audaciously finished it off to net her second and sparked celebrations at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The Moroccans then, took over the game, dominated possession in the latter part of the first half but had nothing to show for it as the first half came to a close.
Back from recess, the second half saw both teams pressing hard with Ghana captain, Elizabeth Addo coming close in the 68th and 76th minutes but her efforts got cleared off the goal line by goalkeeper, Errnichi Khadija.
The Black Queens dominated the latter stages of the game but could not find the back of the net as the Moroccans resorted to a defensive system to avoid an embarrassing score line.
The two teams changed their pattern of play to conserve energy with the game-ending two nil in favour of Ghana. The Black Queens thus won 5-1 on aggregate following a come from behind 3-1 win in the reverse tie on Thursday.
