2022 AWCON qualifiers: Black Queens coach Mercy Tagoe confident of comeback against Nigeria

Must Read

Black Queens head coach, Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo has vowed her players will give whatever it takes to overturn a first-leg defeat when they take on Nigeria in the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Ghana suffered a 2-0 loss to their African champions on Wednesday at the Mobolaji Johnson stadium in Lagos.

Uchenna Kanu struck both goals for the hosts before the break-in Lagos, the first with a header before adding her second from a corner.

Despite a disappointing defeat in Nigeria, Tagoe-Quarcoo heaped praise on her side and is confident they can make the best of the second leg meeting at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday, October 24.

“So far so good, I think we played well, tactically we were very disciplined, and we came to play football,” Tagoe-Quarcoo said as quoted by Cafonline.com

“Unfortunately, the Nigerians were stronger and tougher than we were, but when it comes to intelligence, we were far way ahead of them.

“When you are playing an away game, it’s not easy, so we are going back to the drawing board to correct our mistakes. We are going back home and waiting to receive [Nigeria] in Accra.”

The winner over the two legs will face either Niger or Cote d’Ivoire for a place in the 12-team tournament to be hosted in Morocco.
