Cameroon international Michaela Abam has tipped Ghana and DR Congo to book their tickets to the 2023 Women's Cup.

South Africa's debut outing in France last year saw African nations to participate at the global showpiece swell to six after Cameroon, Ghana, Nigeria, Cote d'Ivoire and Equatorial Guinea.

The Lioness played 1-1 stalemate with Ghana at the Africa Women's Cup of Nations in 2018 before they edged the Democratic Republic of Congo 3-2 in the Olympic Qualifiers last October.

"It will have to be Ghana (to qualify for the World Cup) for sure," the Real Betis player told Goal.

"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."

The Black Queens of Ghana have missed out on the World Cup since 2007.
