The Ghana Black Queens under the leadership of the current GFA president has been criticized with little to account for.
With many worried about the attention of the national teams shifting to only the male senior national team, the Black Stars, Former Captain of the Black Queens aired her grievance with regards to their preparations prior to such competitions and has been sidelines ever since.
The AWCON qualifier between the Black Queens of Ghana and the Super Falcons of Nigeria took place on the 20th of October as the Falcons hosted their ark rivals, the Black Queens.
The qualifier that is a double-header hosted the first leg in Nigeria and saw the Black Queens annihilated in a 2-0 defeat at the hands of the Super Falcons.
Uche Kanu gave the Super Falcons hope of qualification to Morocco with a superb brace in the first half. Suffering a defeat in the hand of their South African counterparts, the Super Falcons started the game with urgency and pushed for a opener with little clear cut chances of a goal.
Kanu Uche, who was hungry for a goal got the opener from an expertly timed delivery by Ordega, six minutes after putting her team in the lead, Uche Kanu headed the Super Falcons into a two-goal lead from a corner-kick.
The Black Queens fought back but their efforts was not enough to savage a consolation in their first tie.
The Blacks Queens now have the chance to come home and prepare for the return encounter at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday, 24th October.
Astute sports journalist, Mr. Listowel Mensah on his take after the Black Queens lost in Nigeria stated,
“10-16 quality female footballers are playing for top clubs in Europe, who want to play for the Black Queens but need nationality switch, our GFA president does not care. I want the sports minister to launch a commission of inquiry into why the GFA decided not to appoint coach Usif Basigi to any of our female national teams. I want to know what happened when he coached our ladies. Our women football is dusted, and the sports minister should be worried.”
He continues to say, “GFA like other settings don’t like it when you speak the truth, in solidarity with the sidelining of their captain because she wanted the best for her team, most of our Black Queen players have decided not to honour invitations and that should bother the leadership.”
