Head Coach of Ghana’s Black Queens, Mercy Tagoe has described CAF’s decision to cancel the Women’s Africa Cup of Nation as disappointing.
The competition was expected to come off in November and December this year but CAF had yet to find a host after Congo pulled out of hosting the tournament in July last year.
Despite her disappointment, Tagoe believes the decision was taken in a bid to protect the health of players and the football fraternity at large.
“It is very disappointing, but you can’t blame anybody, apparently everybody is trying to find a way to protect him or herself from the Coronavirus,” Tagoe said in an interview.
“So I believe that CAF AND FIFA is also doing same by trying to protect the football fraternity, if not the country, the member associations, they are trying to protect them from contracting the Coronavirus.”
Nigeria’s Super Falcons are the defending champions of the competition after defeating South Africa in the last edition which Ghana hosted in 2018.
The Women’s Africa Cup Of Nations is expected to make a come back in 2022.
