2018 Women’s Afcon: Hosts Ghana call 33 players to camp

Ghana coach Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo has named seven foreign-based players among a pool of 33 to begin preparations for the 2018 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations.

There is a first-time call-up for US-based Oklahama Baptist University striker Markella Suka while tough-tackling defender Linda Eshun has been recalled after being excluded from the team’s recent assignments.

Goalkeeper Barikisu Issahaku has also been drafted into the senior national team after missing out on the final squad for Ghana’s campaign at the Under-20 Women’s World Cup.

The Black Queens will begin using the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence in Prampram as their camping base from Thursday, August 2.
