Ghana women's coach Mercy Tagoe has invited 30 players for an international friendly against Morocco in Accra later this November.

The Black Queens will be playing for the first time since their participation in the 2020 Turkish Women's Cup in Alanya in March following the lockdown as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

With the West Africans scheduled to host their Northern Africa opponents, coach Tagoe has named a 30-woman squad, comprising of 29 home-based professionals and one foreign player.

Alberta Ahialey, who last turned out for Portuguese side Atletico Ouriense, was the only overseas-based professional on the squad.
