Winner of Nigeria, Ghana tie will again meet either Cote d’Ivoire or Niger in the second round knockout stage before qualifying for Morocco final.
In her recent interview published in the FIFA website, Tagoe said they are aware that Nigeria is the reigning African champions, so there is no room for complacency when both nations meet in October and next February.
Tagoe, a former Ghana international player and later Ghana league referee argued that: “Aside from the technical and tactical aspect of training, we are doing a lot of psychological exercises. I did the same routine at the WAFU Zone B tournament in Côte d’Ivoire in 2018, and Ghana beat Nigeria for the first time at that event”.
The Black Queens have featured at three previous editions of the World Cup, most recently competing at China 2007 before failing to qualify for the FIFA Women’s World Cups final in Germany 2011; Canada 2015 and France 2019.
