Having led the team to win the maiden edition of the WAFU Women’s Cup of Nations, Black Queens Coach Mercy Tagoe admits her team is under pressure to defend the title.
Mercy Tagoe will be leading the team when they open their Group campaign against Senegal.
The team left the country to Cote d’ Ivoire on Monday in their quest to defend the title.
Tagoe, who was confirmed head Coach of the side after serving as the deputy trainer at the 2018 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations believes they would need to work extra to defend the title.
“Sure [there’s pressure] because, you have won the maiden edition. It’s a record and everybody wants to make sure that whoever meets the defending champions will play at her best to flaw us [the defending champions] in order to take the cup from us,” ”she spoke to NBSportslive.
“So we [Black Queens] are the main target, because the cup is in our custody. Everybody who meets Ghana is there to make sure that we are defeated.
Winning the WAFU Cup of Nations will certainly erase the team’s abysmal display at the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations.
