Will the sweeping changes in personnel transform the lackluster results chalked by the Black Queens in recent times, was the failures of the Black Queens due to technical bankruptcy or player incompetence ? these are a few of the questions on the minds of many fans of Ghana's senior women's team.
In comes a new coach with his tried and trusted army of youthful players,perhaps this is a sign of good things to come.
