Black Queens midfielder, Elizabeth Addo has reacted to the upcoming Dr. Aisha Buhari Cup Group B draw which pitched Ghana, South Africa and Cameroon.
The highly anticipated six nations tournament is been organized in honour of the First Lady of Nigeria, Dr. Aisha Buhari in conjunction with the Aisha Buhari Foundation and also to build and sustain positive narratives about Women football on the continent.
The tournament is scheduled for 13th – 21st September 2021 in Lagos, Nigeria and the Djugardens IF midfielder says, despite they being in a tough group, it will be a good test for them ahead of their October AWCON qualifier against Nigeria.
“Yes the group is tough because we are going to compete with two powerful houses, Cameroon and South Africa, we all know that they’re very strong in African football,” Addo told ghanasportspage.com.
“I think it’s a good thing to be meeting these two strong teams because we have African women’s cup of nations qualifier against Nigeria in October, it’s a good practice for us (Black Queens). We haven’t played any tournament in this year 2021, so I think it will help the coach get her good team to face Nigeria in the upcoming qualifier,” she added.
Host Nigeria will face Morocco and Mali in Group A.
The tournament will also be used by all participating teams to prepare for the pending Africa Women’s Cup of Nations qualifiers.
