TOKYO 2020: Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo Set Sights On Qualifying Ghana For Olympics

Former FIFA referee now turned head coach Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo has set her sights on qualifying the Black Queens to the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

After guiding her side to the third round of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games qualifiers with a 5-0 aggregate against Gabon, Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo wants to progress to the global showpiece for the first time in Ghana’s history.

Ahead of their next hurdle against Kenya in the third round, Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo believes it is not going to be a difficult tie.

“I don’t think it’s difficult, they are women like we are. We’ve played a draw with them in their own backyard [before]” she told NBSportslive.

“I believe that with the current crop of players I have put together, with a little time in camp, blending with the team together.

“It will gel and you will see good results.

She added:

“My target is to qualify for the Olympic Games in Tokyo [next year].

“There’s nothing like pressure, we are all determined, we want to get there and that is exactly what we we’ve started doing” she ended.
