    Did the coach drop Nyantakyie the gfa boss?.,because he is a good striker.

  2. Emmanuel says:

    why not Jane Ayeyiam in the squad?

    wish the black queens all the best…after all Ghana has been for some time repressing the continent amazingly,take nothing away from Nigeria but their arrogance/pride overlaps their talent. Ghanaian Edwin Gyma. plays with amazing calmness and that’s very appealing to us south africans…and all the best to him at Black Aces….

    Why have u left out Sulley Muntari and KPB from the squad? They are all below the age of 20!

  5. Kenyan says:

    i’ve got to say these girls they are ugly mossss….

    If Jane Ayieyam is not injured there is no justification for not selecting her. She has power, speed and skill and most importantly the hunger to succeed — a trait our senior team lacks. Pls reconsider. It’s not her fault that she is so young

    If these ladies have worked on their strength training since two years ago, they might make a great mark in this tournament. Last time, they were good but lacked power in their shots.
