Former Black Queens captain Alberta Sackey is worried about Ghana’s FAILURE to win the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations.
Ghana have been unable to get a hand on the title since its inception back in 1991.
The Black Queens first participated in the competition in 1995 where they finished among the top four teams together with Nigeria, South Africa and Angola.
The team however came close in 1998, 2002 and 2006 where they second behind record holders Nigeria in all three occasions.
Despite the incredible output at the tournament, Ghana have been unable to win the trophy in their last 11 appearances, a situation which leaves Sackey bothered.
“It is very worrying because you we always played second fiddle to Nigeria, we lost to Nigeria in the finals on three occasions and we has since not been able to make the finals,” the former African Women’s Player of the Year told GTV Sports plus.
“In 2018 just when we all thought we could get the chance to win the trophy for the first time we actually failed to qualify out of the Groups.
“Nigeria have been able to win it eleven times. During our time is very unfortunate we couldn’t win it but we were hoping that those who came after us would do what we couldn’t do.”
“It is my wish that we win it for the first time because when it comes to Women’s Football in Africa we are one of the best.”
Equatorial Guinea remains the only country apart from Nigeria to have won the competition after clinching it in 2008 and 2012.
