Head coach of the Black Queens, Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo has said that her team is well prepared ahead of their 2022 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations [AWCON] qualifier against the Super Falcons this afternoon at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Nigeria.

Matches between the Black Queens and the Super Falcons has been very uncompromising at any level even though the nine-time African champions [Nigeria] are slightly ahead of Ghana in terms of statistical balance.

But nonetheless, Tagoe-Quarcoo is very optimistic going into today’s fierce encounter:

“So far we are prepared for the game.

“When Nigeria is meeting Ghana, it is like two top Ghana Premier League teams Kotoko and Hearts but that notwithstanding, we are well prepared.

“I have psyched the girls in such a way that our approach is not going to be in a rush but rather to take things in a very calm manner and play as we all know Ghana.

“In a nutshell we are doing well and poised for the game tomorrow. We are also pleading with Ghanaians to support us in prayers.

According to Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo everything is well in the camp of the Black Queens ahead of the game except Philicity Asuako who is down with malaria”

“We have no injuries in camp but just one player Philicity Asuako is down with malaria and I am trying to rest her out of the game. Aside that everybody is fine.”

Ghana will host the Super Falcons in the return leg at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday, October 24, 2021.
