The head coach of the female senior national team, Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo is unfazed by the daunting task of playing either Mali or arch-enemy Nigeria in the semifinals of the ongoing WAFU competition.
Ghana became the first nation to qualify for the semi finals after thrashing cross-town rivals Togo 6-0 but fell short on finishing top of Group A.
By virtue of Ghana’s position in the group, they are most likely to face Nigeria but Mali will play the Queens if they beat Nigeria tomorrow.
Speaking to NBSportslive after her side’s stalemate Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo said,
“It doesn’t matter whether it’s Mali or Nigeria. We are ready for any of them.
“We are just waiting. It’s unfortunate it rained, we could have won this match hands down.
“We played 80% of the game irrespective of the stature of my opponents, we did extremely well.
“It’s unfortunate we couldn’t get a goal because of the soggy field and poor visibility.
“We don’t care whether it’s Mali or Nigeria, we are ready for them.”
The competition goes for a break after the final group games in Group B and returns on Thursday May 16 for the semi finals.
