Ghana’s national Womens team, the Black Queens have secured an international friendly with South Africa.
The friendly comes in handy as the Black Queens get ready to battle Cameroon in the Africa Womens Championships qualifier in May.
The team was originally scheduled to begin camping for the Cameroon game at the end of March but have been forced to regroup this Sunday due to the friendly engagement with the Banyana Banyana to be played on March 21 in South Africa.
Head coach Kuuku Dadzie is thrilled with the early camping and especially with a worthy opponent in South Africa to give his team a stern test before the crucial qualifier with the Indomitable Lioness.
“We were supposed to resume camp at the ending of March but fortunately we had an invitation from South Africa to play a friendly game in South Africa,” he told Accra-based Radio XYZ.
“I think it is a good time for a friendly ahead of our qualifier with Cameroon and I hope the necessary arrangements are being done for us to honour this game against South Africa.”
Ghana seeks to reclaim its past glory in the African Womens Championships where they were kicked out at just the group stage in the last edition in Equatorial Guinea.
