Ghana's No. 1

Cameroon's Michaela Abam tips Black Queens for 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup

Published on: 11 June 2020

Cameroon international forward Michaela Abam has tipped Ghana to secure qualification to the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup.

South Africa's maiden appearance in France last year saw African nations to participate in the biggest Women's football tournament swell to six after Cameroon, Ghana, Nigeria, Ivory Coast and Equatorial Guinea.

The Real Betis forward believes the Black Queens have the potential of challenging for the African ticket for the global showpiece in 2023.

Ghana have not been to the Women's World Cup since 2007 and are poised to make it to the next edition.

"It will have to be Ghana (to qualify for the World Cup) for sure," Abam told Goal with LaLiga. 

"Even during the Africa Women's Cup of Nations, we were playing against them and I was watching them. They were a team that has a lot of strength. 

"I feel like it’s a team that is continuing to grow and not getting the notice they should be getting but I believe at the right time it will definitely come.

"I think the Democratic Republic of Congo too. They are a very strong team.

"It is those teams that you have not really watched or had any background sense of how they play, how they are but when you get to the field with them, it is like a whole out there. 

"The tactics behind everything with each team and mental strength as well is not something that is hard for us to grow as Africans in general. 

"That will come naturally but them just getting that experience and appearances on a different level is going to be mind-blowing for those we’ve not seen yet."
