Comfort Yeboah gets late call-up for Black Queens' WAFCON qualifier in Rwanda

Published on: 19 September 2023

Ampem Darkoa Ladies' midfielder, Comfort Yeboah, has received a late call-up to join the Black Queens for the Women's Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Rwanda.

She steps in for IFK Norkoping midfielder Azumah Bugre, who sustained an injury in her recent game in Sweden before the international break.

Yeboah's stellar performances on the domestic front, contributing to Ampem Darkoa's double win and their WAFU Zone B championship, have earned her this opportunity.

The Black Queens arrived in Kigali on Tuesday and are set to face the She Amavubis on Wednesday for the first leg of the WAFCON qualifiers.

Coach Nora Hauptle finalized a 23-woman squad for the Kigali trip, which includes young talent Nyamekye Stella and Ampem Darkoa standout Mary Amponsah.

To advance to the next stage, the Black Queens need to secure a victory over the She Amavubi in a two-legged match-up.

Having missed out on the last tournament in Morocco, Ghana is eager to make a strong comeback by qualifying for next year's edition.
