Queens upbeat about AWC draw

Black Queens Head Coach, Yusif Bassigi is positive about his side chances in the upcoming African Women’s Championship (AWC) despite been handed a difficult draw.

The Black Queens have drawn rivals defending champions Nigeria, Kenya and Mali in Group B for this year’s championship.

It is a tough draw for Ghana who failed to progress from the Group stage of the last edition in Namibia.

“I anticipate a tough tournament. Playing against a country like Kenya who is new to the terrain is always very difficult because you don’t know much about them’’ he told JOY Sports.

“Their style of play is not known which makes it very difficult.”

“We have not started camping yet but we are focused on a good strategy. I am confident we will qualify out of the group”

The tournament starts on November 19.
