Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo want Ghanaians to be constructive with their criticisms as the team seeks to recapture the WAFU Zone B Cup.

Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo and her 30-woman contingent have pitched camp in Cape Coast since last week and preparing feverishly for the second edition of the sub-regional competition.

Ahead of the forthcoming tournament, the head trainer of the Black Queens has entreated Ghanaians to pray for the team.

“Ghanaians are expecting us (Black Queens) to return the country with the cup but we entreat them (Ghanaians) to pray for the team.

Speaking to NBSportslive she said:

“Again the criticisms about the team should be a positive one in order to boost our confidence rather if it turns out to be negative, it will breakdown out spirits and eventually mean my efforts are not being appreciated.

“All hands must be on deck in order to go and claim the victory and bring it back to the country.”

Ghana will begin their quest for back-to-back glory in the sub-regional competition against Senegal on May 8.
