Sealed: Black Queens qualify for AWC in style

Ghana’s senior national women’s team have qualified for this year’s African Women’s Championship (AWC) to be hosted by Namibia in October.

The Black Queens sealed qualification with a 3-0 thumping of Ethiopia in Tamale on Sunday, in what was the second leg of their last round of qualifying.

Coach Yusif Basigi’s side have qualified for the tournament with an impressive 100% record, scoring a whooping 11 goals in all their four games played and won.

Burkina Faso were the first to fall in the first round of qualifying three months ago, as the Queens posted a 6-0 aggregate score (3-0 at home and 3-0 away).

Sunday’s win at home in Tamale meant a 5-0 aggregate win over the Ethiopians, as Ghana had triumphed 2-0 back in Addis Ababa last month.

In what will be their 10th appearance at the AWC, Ghana – three-time silver medallists – will hope to lay their hands on the trophy for the first time in their history in Namibia.

The Queens join Algeria, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, South Africa and Zambia, who all qualified over the weekend.

The seven sides will join hosts Namibia in the tournament that kicks off on October 11 and ends on October 25.
