Black Queens head coach Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo has admitted she encountered difficulties in settling on her 20-woman squad for the 2019 WAFU Cup of Nations Zone B title defence.
The former Ghana international had to drop a total of ten players from the provisional 30 players who were invited to pitch camp in Cape Coast.
”Honestly, it was a tedious task in trimming the squad [from 30 players to 20]. Because, those that couldn’t make it to the final squad are equally good as those in camp currently,” she told NBSportslive.
”It’s just that, we had more than excess in certain positions and thus we had to let go of some of them.
”It’s difficult and painful [on the part of the players] to train and get close only to be eliminated by virtue of limited spaces available. It was difficult.”
Ghana start their campaign on 8 May against Senegal before engaging Togo and hosts Cote d’Ivoire in Group A.
