Falconets head coach, Chris Danjuma is looking forward to his side’s final fixture against the Black Stars of Ghana at the African Games 2023.

The holders will be up against the Black Princesses in the final of the women’s football event at the Cape Coast Stadium on Thursday (today).

It will be a repeat of last year’s WAFU B Championship final which Ghana won.

Danjuma stated that it is important for his team to test themselves against a quality opposition like Ghana before the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup which hold later in the year in Colombia.

“I’ve told you from the start that it’s a privilege to be here playing teams that have also qualified for the World Cup,” Danjuma told a press conference.

“It’s an opportunity for us to begin to test ourselves before going for the World Cup.

“And that was the reason why I said, just like every team we respect Ghana, so it’s a joy to play any team here and it’s a joy to play Ghana as well.”
