The most frequent word used in the game of football is the goal. Come Sunday, Ghana will host 7 women national teams from Africa to challenge for one trophy and speak one common language which is a goal.
Ghana has been the host nation will welcome The Fennecs of Algeria to start the tournament. The Black Queens need to win this tournament at the end of the tournament for these reasons;
After the Anas number 12 expose, which revealed the criminality associated with Ghana and Africa football, the football lovers, the local players and the football business people have not gotten the opportunity to witness football locally. African Women Cup of Nations 2018 is the only biggest tournament or competition left to be played in Africa. Ghanaians have missed local football and have drifted their love for European football.
So there is the need to win this tournament to stimulate the football adrenaline in Ghanaians to love local football.
Hosting such a big tournament in Ghana this year is an opportunity for Ghana to redeem its image in football. Ghana is now known to be a corrupt nation to some people when it comes to football, so there is a need to host this tournament well and win it to prove to the world that we are not corrupt because we have won the tournament without cheating.
It has been a long time that Ghana won any football tournament since 2009 that the men Under 20 team lead by Andre Ayew won the World Cup for us in Egypt.
A football nation like Ghana haven’t won the Afcon Women cup before and is a shame to us. This is our year and a year to start producing good football and winning trophies. Since the introduction of African Women Cup of Nations in 1991, Nigeria as a country has won 10 times making them the queens of African women football and Equatorial Guinea also winning twice.
Peace is very much important in every organisation. The Black Queens need to win this tournament to calm the tension in Ghana football for now. Winning the tournament for the nation will shift little attention from Number 12.
In another way it will bring peace in Ghana football and much energy will be utilized in how to develop Ghana football in the future.
The Black Queen must win this by all means especially when they meet the Super Falcons of Nigeria is the final to take a revenge on the previous three meetings that they have snatched the tittle from us Nigeria 2-0 Ghana 1998, Nigeria 2-0 Ghana 2000, and Nigeria 1-0 Ghana 2006.
Ghana must win, The Black Queens must win.
