The female national team of Ghana, the Black Queens have touched down in Nairobi for the reverse fixture of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games qualifier against Kenya. 

Coach Mercy Quarcoo-Tagoe and her charges have arrived in the East African country ahead of Tuesday's game.

 ”If they have been able to pick a draw over here, we can also go there and win the game. I am confident we will beat them and qualify to the next round,” coach Tagoe said before the team's departure.

Below is the team that left for Kenya:

Fafali Dumehasi, Gladys Amfobea, Ellen Coleman, Rita Okyere, Janet Egyir, Juliet Acheampong, Portia Boakye, Priscilla Okyere, Evelyn Badu, Elizabeth Owusuaa, Anesthesia Aehiaa, Ernestina Abamblla, Mavis Owusu, Grace Acheampong, Philicity Asuak, Azume Adams

The Black Queens were held to a goalless drawn draw game in the first leg clash against the Harambee Starlets at the Accra Sports Stadium and will have to up their game if they plan on advancing to the next phase of the qualifiers. 

Ghana is yet to make an appearance in the Olympics.  

Only the ultimate champions of the qualifiers at the end of the fifth round are guaranteed a place at the Olympics.

The runners-up will have a playoff showdown with the second-placed nation from South America.

At the last Olympics in Brazil, Africa was represented by South Africa and Zimbabwe.
