Black Maidens forward Milot Abena Pokuaa is elated about the inclusion of experienced teammates Linda Eshun and Janet Egyir to the Hasaacas team.
Pokua, 17, on Wednesday helped her side attain the nearly impossible in the ongoing special competition as Hasaacas defeated Soccer Intellectuals 2-1 to qualify from Group C with 8 points, a point adrift leaders, Sea Lions.
After losing their first two games and dropping points, Hasaacas staged arguably the best comeback in the competition, going unbeaten in the second round claiming two wins in their last two matches to qualify from group C.
Quizzed about how she feels concerning her experienced counterparts, the young forward said,
“I feel good about their (Linda Eshun and Janet Egyir) inclusion in the squad because they are our seniors.
“Even when we commit a mistake, they are able to correct us on the field. They motivate us on the pitch, which pushes us to go the extra mile.”
Milot Pokua, a member of the Black Maidens squad that finished in the quarterfinals of the last Women’s U-17 tournament is expected to play a major role for Hasaacas Ladies in the knockout phase of the special competition.
