Black Queens fail to advance in Women’s African Cup

Ghana’s Black Queens were bundled out of the ongoing 2018 Women’s African Cup of Nations on Friday. The Ghanaian ladies failed to beat their colleagues from Cameroon in their last group A match.

Ghana Queens Out

The match was played at the Accra Sports Stadium ended in a 1-1 draw with Ghana having 4 points. Mali beat Algeria 3-2 in Cape Coast in the other match played in Cape Coast to advance.

On the half hour mark, Portia Boakye scored for Ghana.

Cameroon equalised shortly before half-time when Aboudi Onguene was fouled running down the left wing for a blatant penalty.

The Queens started the tournament in a promising style after they beat Algeria 1-0 in the opening game of the tournament. They surprisingly lost 1-2 to Mali in their second game which complicated their chances to qualify for the semi finals.

Cameroon and Mali thus advance into the semi- final, therefore they also qualify for the FIFA Women’s World Cup to be played in France in June 2019.
