Black Queens Striker Sandra Owusu Ansah’s Knee ‘Rots’ After Injury


The future of Black Princesses and Black Queens attacker, Sandra Owusu Ansah hangs in the balance as a result of a knee injury she suffered while on national assignment at the 2014 Women’s Under 17 World Cup in Costa Rica.

The 19-year-old attacker, who is also the skipper of the national women’s Under-20 side, the Black Princesses, says she had to conceal the effects of the injury to play for the country at various levels since 2014.

Sandra Owusu Ansah captained the Black Maidens at the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup finals in Jordan.

“I got injured at the under 17 World Cup in Costa Rica; it was not severe as it is now so I concealed it and went ahead to play the next world cup in Jordan and then at the under 20 level at Papua New Guinea under Coach Masuud Didi Dramani and then in France”, she said in an interview on Kumasi-based Angel FM.

The player was ruled out of the 2018 African Women’s Cup of Nation (AWCON 2018) hosted by Ghana due to the injury set back which impact escalated at a training session prior to the tournament.
