‘We had no excuse in our defeat to Morocco’ – Yusif Basigi

The Black Princesses of Ghana witnessed their first ever international friendly at home against the Moroccans.

In March, the Princesses traveled out to meet “up and coming” women’s national team of Morocco with a 3:2 results. The Moroccans exhibited prowess at home and replicated it here in Ghana.

Speaking to Head Coach Yusif Basigi, after the game, he said;

“If they were to be here at the time we were in camp, that would have been a different ball game”

The Black Princesses broke camp last month due to precautionary reasons against the novel coronavirus.  They reassembled in six days which Coach Yusif Basigi mentioned as a worry to the team.

“Training on an AstroTurf and playing on a grass pitch was an obvious reason for most wrong passes to  teammates “ Coach Basigi detailed.

“We were a bit heavy but looking forward to play better on Monday “

Milot Pokuaa is indisposed, a better pair with Mukarama in Uruguay, they appeared as the two top attackers” Coach Basigi elaborated.

Following a successful campaign in Uruguay, hosting our first international friendly was no yardstick to lose .

Transition from Maidens to Princesses is a major factor but bringing in foreign based players to beef up the squad is not idle, the home based players need more exposure “ He concluded.
