ABC: Experience made the difference for Ghana – Tagoe

Head coach of Ghana’s women’s national team, Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo says the experienced players in her side made the difference in their 2-0 win over Cameroon on Monday.

Both footballing rivals clashed in their final outing at the inaugural Aisha Buhari Cup (ABC) taking place at the Mobolaji Johnson Stadium aka Onikan Stadium, in Lagos, Nigeria on Monday with Tagoe’s ladies enjoying a deserved win.

The Black Queens were comprehensively beaten 3-0 by South Africa in their first game in the competition three days ago but bounced back in style, courtesy of two well taken second half goals.

“With the new players we paraded in the first game, inexperience cost us one way or the other so I needed to do one or two changes in the team.

“I made a lot of changes and I think the experienced ones really propelled the team and helped the entire team to where we are now,” Tagoe-Quarcoo told reporters after the game.

Impressive attacker Princella Adubea scored the game’s curtain raiser on the hour mark before Vivian Adjei Konadu made sure of the win for Ghana late on with a superb solo effort.

Tagoe continued: “Coincidentally, both sides brought new and fresh legs into this game trying to test and see how best everybody can fit into the team.

“In a nutshell, I really made some changes in terms of positions and it really helped.”

The ABC comes as good preparation for Ghana ahead of next month’s Africa Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON) and Women’s World Cup qualifiers against Nigeria.
