We were not impressive against Gabon - Black Queens Coach admits

Published on: 04 September 2019

Head coach for the Black Queens of Ghana, Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo has disclosed that her team did not impress in their 2-0 thumping of the Panthers of Gabon at the Accra Sports Stadium on Tuesday.

The West African country hosted its counterpart from Central Africa for the second leg of the first qualifying round for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

Having already won the first leg 3-0 in Libreville, the Queens cruised to another impressive 2-0 win at the end of the day despite performing below par.

In a post-match interview after emerging as 5-0 aggregate winners, Coach Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo shared that her team did not perform very well but the most important thing is that they won and didn’t concede.

“We were not too impressive compared to the first leg in Gabon. But all said and done I think football is all about goals. We have been able to take our three points. We didn’t concede any goal and that is the most important thing, the gaffer indicated.

She continued, “We have qualified from one stage and we are going to another stage so we are looking forward to having another successful match in our subsequent games”.

Up next for Ghana, she will face Kenya in the next round of the qualifiers for the next Olympic Games.
