Head coach of the senior women’s national team of Ghana, Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo has promised that the Black Queens will today face the Lionesses of Cameroon in the Aisha Buhari Cup with a distinct approach.

The Black Queens were outplayed and outgunned by the Banyana Banyana on Friday, losing 0-3 to their South African counterpart.

But coach Tagoe–Quarcoo believes the story will be different against Cameroon.

“We are still continuing with our training after the defeat. I have been able to psych the ladies and everybody is calm now and we’ve done our recovery and still preparing towards the game that is about to be played,” she told

“I think everything is in place. We all know that the defeat we had from the South African game was not that encouraging but then we have done one or two changes that I believe the second game is going to be different.”

She also added the plans ahead for the Black Queens beyond the Aisha Buhari Cup:

“That notwithstanding, we all know that we are in a team building period and I brought a lot of home-based players who are not too experienced.

“They need to have such International friendlies to let them have the experience, toughen them so that when the foreign based players comes, I can add one or two from the current crop of players.

“I believe that we will have a formidable team and in a nutshell I believe we are on course and just waiting for tomorrow where we will see a different ball game.”
