Ghana have named a 21-member squad for the 2014 African Women's Championship in Namibia.

The Black Queens are paired with South Africa, Cameroon and Algeria in Group B for the finals, which take place in two stadiums in Windhoek from 11-24 October.

Coach Yusif Basigi's side arrived in Namibia on Sunday to continue with preparations ahead of the start of the Championship.

Basigi is hoping to lead the Black Queens to their first African women's Championship title; they have been runners-up three times - in 1998, 2002 and 2006.

They failed to qualify for the finals in 2012 but are fancied to do well this time.

Ghana Women's squad:

Nana Ama Asantewaa, Fafali Dumehasi, Mary Berko, Faiza Ibrahim, Diana Ankomah (Police) Patricia Mantey, Rosemary Ampem, Leticia Zikpi, Agnes Quaye, (Immigration) Portia Boakye, Agnes Aduako (Fabulous Ladies) Janet Egyir, Samira Suleman, Linda Eshun, Elizabeth Cudjoe (Hasaacas Ladies) Juliet Acheampong (Ashtown Ladies) Mercy Myles, Cynthia Adobea, Grace Asare (Reformers Ladies) Hillia Kobblah (Faith Ladies) Mary Essiful (Intellectuals)
