Black Queens stand-in Coach Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo will not be seeking revenge over Cote d’Ivoire at the finals of the WAFU Women’s Cup of Nations.
Mercy Tagoe and her ladies suffered a painful 1-0 defeat to the host in the opening match of the tournament.
Ghana, after losing their opening group game managed to secure victories over Niger and Burkina Faso to set a clash with rivals Nigeria at the semi-finals.
The Black Queens however confirmed a place at the finals by edging out their nemesis 5-4 on penalties.
Mercy Tagoe wants her team to give a good account of themselves in the final match rather than heading into the game with the aim to avenge defeat.
“Not at all, that is not our focus, we are not going into the game to avenge the defeat to Cote d’ Ivoire,” She said after the win over Nigeria.
“As we have been taking it game after game, we will approach the final just like any other game, just like we approached the games against Niger, Burkina Faso and Nigeria.
The former FIFA referee could make history as the first female Coach to win a silverware with the Black Queens team and also only the second to win a trophy with the team after Yusif Basigi guided the side to clinch Gold at the 2015 All Africa games in Congo.
