Accra, Oct. 9,
– Fafali Dumehasi, the Black Queens goalkeeper has admitted that her
team has disappointed Ghanaians for failing to qualify for the 2020 Olympic
Games billed for Tokyo, Japan.

The Black
Queens once again failed to book a ticket to the quadrennial sporting event
after losing on a 0-1 aggregate to Kenya.

Ghana’s senior
national team, guided by Coach Mercy Tagoe suffered a painful defeat yesterday
when they were ousted by a last minute penalty from the homers.

Ghana’s goal
poacher after the game said, though they were confident of qualifying to the
biggest sporting event, they missed out on the opportunity again but, hopeful
to make amends in their future tournaments.

She said, “It
is a thing to represent your country and feel I proud, that has always been me
no matter what happens. As a team we fought, we pushed we did all we could but
maybe our best wasn’t enough.

“We aimed high,
we wanted to do it for ourselves and Ghana but we couldn’t. We’ve disappointed
the people of Ghana, yes we know, but we won’t give up. We would make amends
and I hope it happens soon.”

The players
arrived in the country after the disappointing performance against Kenya.
