Black Queens captain Elizabeth Addo dropped ahead of Nigeria clash
Black Queens captain Elizabeth Addo has been excluded from the squad announced by head coach Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo to face Nigeria in the first leg of the 2022 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON) qualifiers.
Addo had earlier been dropped from the team that participated in the Aisha Buhari tournament last month with many attributing the decision to her criticizing the Ghana FA on the lack of preparations for the senior national women’s team ahead of the 2022 AWCON qualifier against Nigeria.
Coach Quarcoo’s 22 women squad has four foreign-based players with Israel-based defender Blessing Shine Agbomadzi making a return to the squad.
Portia Boakye and Spain-based duo Princella Adubea and Grace Asantewaa complete the list of foreign-based players invited for the hurdle.
Ghana will take on the Super Falcons of Nigeria in two legs set for October 20 and 24 respectively with the winner of the two matches progressing to the final round of qualifiers for Africa’s flagship female competition.
