Queens’ final list for WAFU tourney out

Black Queens head Coach, Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo has named her list of 20 players selected for this year's West Africa Football Union (WAFU) Zone B tournament scheduled for Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire, from May 8 to 18.

Tagoe Quarcoo made her final list from the 25 players who were in camp having made the cut from the initial 30 invited to prepare for the tournament.

Last Monday, the Graphic Sports rightly predicted the final list, except Evelyn Owusuaa who missed out.

Eleven players who played for the Queens at the 2018 tournament maintained their places in the team, with Fafali Dumehasi securing the first choice goalkeeper’s role.

Also on the list are world Under-17 top striker, Mukarama Abdulai, and her counterpart, Grace Animah.

Explaining the choice of the final 20 to the Graphic Sports Online, the coach who led the Queens to win the maiden tournament in Abidjan last year, said the players were selected due to the quality and experience they bring to the team.

The Queens are due to leave for Abidjan on Friday to begin their title defence on May 9 against Mali in Group B which also has Nigeria and Niger.
