Head coach of the senior female National team, Black Queens of Ghana, Bashir Hayford has ridiculed critics saying the team is not ready to participate in the upcoming African Women Cup of Nations tournament.
His comment came as a surprise, especially when the Media Relations Officer, Roslyn Amoh in an earlier media interview had doubted the readiness of the Team and its ability to cross the group stage of the Tournament, scheduled to take place in Ghana.
Speaking on Bolgatanga based A1 Radio Sport programme, “What’s the Score”, the Head Coach of the Black Queens, Bashir Hayford said, his Team is under no pressure, and they are ready to compete and win the 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations on home soil.
“We have being playing with various teams prior to this big task ahead of us. In October, we are expecting eight of our international players to join us. So far, we are expecting the Ministry of Youth and Sport to give us the international platforms to play, and show the whole world that we are prepared”, Bashir Hayford said.
Meanwhile, there were initial fears that Ghana may not host the 2018 African Women Cup of Nations tournament due to delays of renovation works at the Accra and Cape Coast Sports Stadia. But the Project Contractor, Kelvin Ofori was able to clear the air that all works will be finished in October and Ghana is in position to host the tournament.
