JAPAN’S FEMALE SIDE TEACH BLACK QUEENS SOME FOOTBALL LESSONS IN 7-1 THRASH

The Black Queens of Ghana were given some football lessons when they were thrashed 7-1 defeat by their female counterparts of Japan in an international friendly on Sunday morning.

The Queens could not hold unto their impressive display in the first half as they conceded four goals in the second half.

Jane Ayiyiam drew the Black Queens level after she slotted home on a defensive blunder from the Japanese to cancel Nadeshiko’s 14th-minute goal.

However, Iwabuchi restored Japan’s lead in the 29th minute despite some good saves from Ghana goalkeeper Patricia Mantey.

The Japanese made it three just before halftime as the Ghanaians lost concentration and the defense left in sixes and sevens.

The Queens really found it difficult to contain the pace and skillful Japanese side as Nakajima got the fourth for the home team.

Coach, Mercy Tagoe made some changes by bringing on Grace Owusu for Priscilla Okyere who had been quiet throughout.

But Takaji got another goal for the host after Patricia Mantey had pulled a fine save to deny Sakaguchi from scoring.

Sugasawa lobbed home for Nadeshiko’s sixth before Sameshima joined the party by wrapping up the victory for Japan with the seventh goal 3 minutes to full time.

The Black Queens will be hoping to corrects their mistakes before the Africa Women’s Championship kicks off in Ghana later this year.
