The senior national female team, Black Queens, have been handed an invitation to play Namibia in a friendly game to mark the country’s 24th year Independence anniversary.
Coach of the team Yussif Basigi believes the game in Windhoek on March 21 will be a good test for his side as they prepare to play Ethiopia in the African Women’s Championship.
“Even though the game against Namibia is an emergency assignment, it will be a very good preparatory game for the Queens, am particularly happy because our league is ongoing and all the players are in good shape”, he told Asempa FM.
The game forms part of planned events to mark Namibia’s 24th Independence anniversary celebration.
Ghana is on the verge of qualification for the African Women’s Championship with a final hurdle against Ethiopia in April.
“It’s certainly a good test for my girls ahead of our clash against Ethiopia in April, Ethiopia have a good team but the only problem will be the altitude. We will be hoping to pitch camp in Kenya so we can familiarise with the conditions, Namibia will also give a fair idea of the condition in Ethiopia” he added.
