The weekend will be a decisive one for Ghana's Black Queens who are seeking to turn things around in the qualifying for the 2012 Africa Women Championship.
Ghana failed to make make home advantage fully count after drawing 1-1 with Cameroon in the first leg in Accra as they are faced with a major hurdle now.
It wasn’t the best of results in the final round with the winner over both legs making it to the Championship in Equatorial Guinea, later in November.
However, ahead of the reverse clash in Yaounde against the Lionesses, Black Queens coach, Kuuku Dadzie admits that Ghana are walking a tight rope.
“Cameroon has an advantage after the 1-1 draw in the first leg. The away goal is vital for their chances," Black Queens coach, Dadzie said as he weighed his side's chances ahead of the decisive clash.
“They (Cameroon) have a strong team and their performance reflected the latest rankings. However, all is not yet lost. We are hopeful of qualification."
Dadzie has been preparing his Black Queens from Ethiopia for the game since last week and is happy with their build up.
“Training in Ethiopia which has a higher altitude was the right choice we took. We have prepared very well and are looking forward to the clash in Yaoundé.”
The Black Queens risk missing out on Africa’s flagship women’s football tournament for the first time since the inception of the biennial championship in 1998 if they fail to get a win or produce a good goal aggregate result.
“Playing away won’t be easy. Football is full of uncertainties and we hope to get the results we so badly need at their backyard,” said Dadzie.
