Basigi demands more from Queens despite qualifying progress


Black Queens coach Yusif Basigi is demanding more from his side despite their 3-0 win over Egypt in the second leg of their first round qualifier.

The game was 2016 Olympics qualifier at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday and the Queens are on course to make their first ever appearance at the Games.

“It was always going to be difficult because they are not a bad side, they came with a tactical ploy but we were able to upset them,” said Basigi.

Winger Portia Boakye opened scoring in the second half before Jane Ayieyam and Elizabeth Addo sealed a 4-1 aggregate scoreline against the Lady Pharoahs.

“We knew how they were going to play, they wanted to sit back and take us on counter breaks but we mapped a strategy for that. Individually we are ahead of them but tactically they are not bad.”

“We have to still sharpen our attack. We were not clinical upfront in the first half so we need to work on our attack going forward.”

The Black Queens are now through to the final stage of the Rio 2016 qualifiers where they will face either Guinea or Cameroon.
