2 years ago

The Black Queens of Ghana trained on Monday ahead of their international friendly against Morocco at the Centre National Du Sport Moulay Rachid in Rabat.

Head Coach Mercy Tagoe and the team have been in camp at the Ghanaman Centre of Excellence for the past 10 days to prepare for this encounter.

This will be the Black Queens first game since October last year after missing out on the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations as well as the FIFA Women’s World Cup slot to Nigeria.

Coach Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo has been speaking about preparations and how important this friendly will be for the team as regards future assignments.

‘’We have been in camp for close to two weeks now and fortunately the Women’s League is on-going so bringing these girls together wasn’t too difficult’’ she said.

‘’They were all active and in good shape though there were one or two lapses here and there which with the help of my assistants, we have tried to shape them up towards this international friendly.

‘’So far everyone is in good shape and putting up their best to make it work on Tuesday.

‘’This international friendly is very important not only for the team but for me as a coach because as a national team coach, with or without assignments, you should be ready for any competition that comes your way.

‘’Ghana will be hosting the All African Games in 2023 and I believe the Black Queens will represent our motherland so getting this international friendly is in its right direction.

‘’I believe that when we continue having these international friendlies, it will help shape the team for future assignments. I believe the girls are also happy for these matches because it is going to help them and the national team’’ the former Ghana defender added.

Morocco will use the match as part of the build up to the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations in July 2022.

The game is scheduled for Tuesday, April 12, 2022 at 10pm at the FAR Sportive Stadium in Rabat.
