Queens Ready For Congo

The national women's team, the Black Queens, will play the Democratic Republic of Congo in the first leg of a third round Olympic Qualifier at the Sunyani Coronation Park this Saturday.

In preparation for this game, the Queens have stepped up their training in anticipation of a performance against their Congolese counterparts who are expected to arrive in Accra tomorrow.

Both sides last met in the group stages of the African Women's Championship (AWC) in Nigeria last year where the Queens kicked the Congolese out in the group stages.

The Congolese team is likely to be made up of most of the players who featured in the World Women's Under-20, while Ghana's Coach Isaac Paha is expected to field the likes of dangerous striker, Anita Amankwa, Skipper Adjoa Bayor and goalkeeper Memunatu Sulemana.

The Congolese are yet to draw with, let alone win against the Queens, and this will be a major challenge for them as they play at Sunyani this weekend.
