The senior women’s team arrived in Germany today to prepare for the start of the African Women Championship later this month in South Africa.

A 24-member playing squad made coach A.K Edusie's list which will be pruned to 21.

The team arrived in the early hours of Wednesday and will have ten days during their training tour of Germany to build up towards the continental Championship.

The Black Queens will play the opening game of the African Women's Championship against Algeria.

Ghana were drawn in Group B and will also play against defending champions Equatorial Guinea and Cameroon. The team's second group game would be against Cameroon ahead of the final clash in Group B with Equatorial Guinea.

The tournament in South Africa takes place from 29 October to 14 November, with the champions and runners-up representing the continent at the FIFA Women's World Cup in Germany next year.
