Ahead of the 2024 Women’s AFCON qualifiers against Namibia, Black Queens defender Linda Eshun shared the immense importance of securing qualification after missing the last two editions.
The last time Ghana qualified for the tournament was in 2018 when they hosted it.
Eshun, who was part of the 2018 squad, emphasized the team’s eagerness to qualify, highlighting the five-year absence and the desire to make a strong impact after falling short in the previous edition.
“For the qualification, it means everything to us. We’ve been out for almost five years…since 2018 when we hosted (the competition) in Ghana, I was part of it we were not able to even go beyond the group stage so this qualification means everything to us. It means a lot to us,” she told the GFA.
The Black Queens, unbeaten under Coach Nora Hauptle, will host Namibia at the Accra Sports Stadium on Friday, December 1, in the first leg of the final qualifying round for AFCON.
