Two Ghanaian referees have been selected to officiate at the 2014

African Women’s Championship (AWC) scheduled for Namibia from October


The duo, Christine Ziga Enyoman and Emmanuella Aglagoh will be the

only Ghanaian representation at the tournament the Black Queens make a

return to following a sit out at the last edition since its inception.

Information gathered by GNA Sports indicates that the two referees

made it into the list of 26 selected officials based on their

performance in recent times.

Ziga, 32, a centre referee will be making a third appearance at a

major continental championship since receiving her international badge

in 2010.

For 34-year-old assistant referee Aglagoh, the tourney will be her

fourth major international competition after the recent FIFA U-17

Women’s World Cup in Azerbaijan and her role at the All African Games

in Maputo, Mozambique in 2011 where she officiated alongside Ziga.

Aglagoh was on duty at the final of the 2014 Youth Olympics in

Nianjing, China a fortnight ago.

Ghanaian referees have performed creditably at the flagship

continental women’s football championship, with retired Mercy Quarcoo

Tagoe going all the way to officiate the final match of the 2008

edition also staged in Equatorial Guinea.
