President of the Ghana Football Association [GFA] – Kurt E.S Okraku has urged the Black Queens to make victory their priority as they face nine-time African champions, Super Falcons of Nigeria for a slot for the 2022 Africa Women’s Nations Cup [AWCON] in Morocco.
The Black Queens will leave Ghana to play the Super Falcons in the first leg on Wednesday, October 20 and return to face them in the second leg on Sunday, October 24 in Ghana.
Speaking to the team [on Sunday] ahead of their journey to Nigeria the FA President advised the players to work as a unite to ensure that they make Ghana proud in the final analysis:
“God willing tomorrow you are leaving for a country you’re so much familiar with. Our opponent is one that we must triumph over by all means available and given the level of preparation you have had from Prampram to Nigeria and back to Prampram and to this camping base, I believe you have some fair preparation including training more on the Astro Turf.
“Nigeria has given us lot of problems in the past same way we also have been their nightmare in the past too.
“We all have a fresh platform to give each other more problems but I believe with the quality of players we have, we can face any opponent and win.
“It does not mean we do not respect Nigeria. They are gifted physically and we are also gifted technically and I have a firm believe that we will go in there and make ourselves and Ghana proud.
“Let’s go in there and play for one another and most importantly stay together. In challenging moments when the game is tough for us when we stay together we will win.”
