Interim head coach of the Black Queens, Mercy Tagoe Quarcoo, says the team’s wastefulness in attack cost them in their 1-0 loss to Cote d’Ivoire in Wednesday’s opening Group A match in the WAFU Zone B Tournament.
The Queens conceded a 70th minute goal from Nina Zote Kpaho to leave them joint bottom of the group with Niger who lost Burkina Faso in the other match played in the group.
Quarcoo spoke after match and said that the result would have been different if the players had taken their chances in the match.
“We went into the match but it did not go out way. But I am very baffled at what went during the match. We created all the chances to put the game away in the first half.
The players did very well and they did all the things we had talked about and worked on during training. In the sessions, we did several shooting drills but but we just could not utilise our chances.”
Opportunities fell to Grace Asantewaa, Priscilla Okyere and Mavis Owusu but they could not score them to give Ghana at least a point from the match.
They will face Niger in their second Group A match on Friday in Abidjan.
