A former Black Queens captain, Adjoa Bayor has attributed Ghana’s exit from the Tokyo 2020 Qualifier to the lack of experienced players on the Ghanaian side.
According to the former CAF Women’s best player, the game was lost in the first leg as the Black Queens failed to score at home. The Queens lost to the Harambee Starlets of Kenya by a lone goal in the second leg of the third round of the qualifiers on Tuesday at the Moi International Sports.
Speaking on Wanputu Sports on Happy FM with Odi Asempa, Adjoa Bayor said, “I am saddened by the Black Queens’ defeat. I noticed the players didn’t play their hearts out for the nation.
“Most of the players are inexperienced so clearly you could see that they are not matured enough to play for the Queens.”
“I blame the technical team because they should have blended the youth with the experienced ones but these young players are not mentally up there to play for the senior team”.
She also proposed a new team to be set up for the Black Queens after this humiliating defeat to the Kenyans.
“The coach should go to the regions and select new players who are experienced and matured to blend with the current ones to prepare for the AWCON qualifiers”.
Bayor also asked why skipper Elizabeth Addo was dropped from the squad
“I don’t know why Elizabeth Addo wasn’t invited for the game. They always say that a player doesn’t respect because they stand up for their rights; such things happened during our time. Apart from her, we have a lot of matured and experience players who can help the team”.
She urged Black Queens head coach, Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo to select the right players for the upcoming qualifiers
