Ghana has potential to make African Games Women’s final

The Black Princesses will play Senegal in the semi final of the ongoing African Games.

Coach Yussif Basigi believes it will be a tough fixture but trust the team to deliver a final qualification.

“We had a tough game against Uganda and our game plan worked. Though we conceded an early goal, we strategised going into the game and I think it worked for us and we finished top of the group” Basigi said.

“We played Senegal during the World Cup qualifiers and scored them but going into this game, we will not underrate them. I have watched them play and they are a good side so we will go into the game taking it very serious as it will be a tough game”.

“Due to the inconsistent nature of our back line due to injury, it makes us a-bit unstable. Though we conceded first before equalising, we will go into the next game to make sure it doesn’t happen as we have worked on our mistakes during training”.

“Mukarama missing chances doesn’t mean she won’t feature for the team. I will keep using her and hopefully she will gain her confidence back”

“She is the lead striker and being away for a long time sometimes make you inconsistent but the team will keep giving her the opportunity to continue playing and I know she will convert most of her chances going forward”

“We worked on her goal scoring prowess during training and hopefully against Senegal, the chances fall to her to convert” Basigi added.

Ghana will play Senegal in the semi final on Monday, March 18, 2024 at the Cape Coast Sports stadium.
