The Normalization Committee of the Ghana Football Association has sent farewell messages to the national female team, Black Queens, following their group stage elimination from the on-going African Women's Cup of Nations. 
The host, Black Queens, were in a group with Cameroon, Mali and Algeria but failed to qualify to the semi-final of the on-going AWCON tournament.
The Ghana FA Normalization Committee has issued a statement on Saturday expressing their utmost regret over the Black Queens' failure to qualify to the next round of the competition adding that they were acknowledged with the immense commitment of the Ministry of Youth and Sports towards the team's preparations.
The Committee also urged Ghanaians to continue to extend their unflinching support and troop to the stadium for the remaining matches to make the competition memorable.
"The Normalization Committee of the Ghana Football Association wishes to express its profound gratitude to stakeholders who contributed towards the participation of the Black Queens in the on-going Total CAF African Woman’s Cup of Nations," the statement signed by the Committee chairman Dr. Kofi Amoah reads.
"While expressing our utmost regret over the Black Queens’ inability to progress to the next round of the competition, we wish to thank the players and the technical team for their efforts and sacrifices to the cause".
"The Ministry of Youth and Sports remained committed to the team’s preparations towards the tournament and we are very grateful to the Ministry for the immense support it offered to the team before and during the tournament. We also acknowledge Government’s investment in ensuring that stadia and other facilities were ready for the tournament".
"We rallied support for the Black Queens and Ghanaians responded positively by offering their support to the Black Queens in many forms, including trooping to the stadium and encouraging them on both traditional and social media".
"Ghana remains a great football nation with huge potential in women’s football and we will continue to work very hard with all stakeholders to get our women’s football to the top level we aspire to be on the African continent".
"The Total CAF African Women’s Cup of Nations is a tournament for African solidarity, and in-spite of Ghana’s regrettable early exit from the competition, we want to urge fellow Ghanaians to continue to support the competition".
"Let us continue to extend our famous Ghanaian hospitality to the remaining nations in the tournament, and let us continue to troop to the stadium to make the competition beautiful and memorable for everyone involved".
