Acting Black Queens coach, Mercy Tagoe Quarcoo has named the squad for the Wafu Women’s Cup to be staged in Cote d’Ivoire from February 14 to 25.
The team is a blend of the 2016 squad that competed at the Africa Women’s Nations Cup in Cameroun as well as players from the Under-20 side, the Black Princesses.
Apart from captain Elizabeth Addo who has been excused so she can complete her move to her new club in the USA, the core of the 2016 made it.
The team left Accra for Abidjan Saturday.
Their group campaign will be in Group A where they meet Cote d’Ivoire, Burkina Faso and Niger.
The Queens’ first game will be on February 14 against hosts, Cote d’Ivoire.
