Eunice alarmed over late Ghana call up



US-based midfielder Eunice Beckmann will not be joining the Black Queens for this year’s Africa Women Cup of Nations (AWCON).

The Boston Breakers player was among 10 foreign-based players named in a provisional 35-woman squad list by head coach Yusif Basigi.

Beckmann, who is also a former Bayern Munich Ladies team player, visited the Queens training ground last week but will not be training with the team for the tournament in Cameroon.

”There must be misunderstanding. I came to Ghana to visit my family. I didn’t join the team.  It’s totally wrong am not going to the tournament,” she said.

The 10th Edition of the AWCON will run from November 19 – 3 December.
