Ghana suffered a shocking 2-1 defeat to Mali in their second game at the ongoing Africa Women Cup of Nations.
Mali won themselves a penalty when Bassira Toure was brought down by Ghana goalkeeper Patricia Mantey in the 22nd minute. The AS striker forward picked herself up and converted easily to hand Les Aiglonnes a surprise lead.
The lead lasted until the 72nd minute when Elizabeth Addo equalised for Ghana. The captain converted a penalty after she was brought down in the box.
But three minutes later, the hosts received another surprise when Toure reacted quickly to slot home from close range when goalkeeper Mantey failed to claim a free-kick at once.
The result has left both teams on three points on Group A’s table.
The Black Queens have it all to do in their last group game on Friday as anything but three points could condemn them to an early exit.
