Ghana’s Black Queens have arrived in Nigeria ahead of the Aisha Buhari Invitational Women’s Football Tournament. The team is currently lodging at the Eko Hotels and will have a recovery training session yesterday afternoon at the Soccer Temple, Agege stadium. Four foreign based players, Grace Asantewaa, Wasila Diwura Soale, Portia Boakye and Priscilla Adubea are expected to join the rest of the squad later today for the competition. The Aisha Buhari Cup is a six nations Invitational Women’s Football Tournament involving Cameroun, Ghana, South Africa, Morocco, Mali and host Nigeria.

Meanwhile, Captain of Ghana’s senior women’s national team, Black Queens, Elizabeth Addo, has been left out of the team’s squad for the upcoming Aisha Buhari Cup.

Head Coach, Mercy Tagoe named her 23-woman squad for the competition which will serve as preparation for the AWCON qualifier against rivals Nigeria next month, and Addo is the most notable absentee.

It is unclear why Addo has been left out, but strong reports of a rift between the player and the Ghana Football Association has been suggested as the reason.

The list is also without forward Sandra Owusu Ansah and defender Linda Eshun.
