Ghana’s Black Queens kicked off their WAFU Championship campaign with a 2-0 win over Senegal in the Group B match played at the Robert Champroux stadium in Abidjan in their opening game last night.
The Black Queens began their title defense with an early victory at the ongoing WAFU Zone B Championship in Abidjan following a 2-0 win against Senegal in their opening game on Wednesday May 8, 2019.
Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo’s remarkable team turned opportunities into goals during the second half of the game with Evelyn Badu and former Ghana youth player Mukarama Abdullai delivering goals each to clinch an early victory for the Queens.
The first opening 45 minutes was very difficult, which saw the strikers a bit apprehensive and the coach had to boost their morale going into the second half of the game.
“In the second half I told them to them to play penetrating passes because we realised the Senegalese were setting offside traps and that did the trick for us,” the coach said.
Ghana will contest in their second WAFU Zone B Championship game facing Togo on Friday, May 10, 2019.
Meanwhile the Togolese suffered a 4-0 defeat to host Cote d’Ivoire in their opening match.
