Highlights of the Black Queens game

The Zambians opened the score sheet and extended their advantage over the Black Queens.

A goal from Gifty Assifuah levelled the game with Doris Boaduwa's strike, giving Ghana a lead and bringing the aggregate score to a 2-2 tie.

In the 61st minute, an ill-lucked own goal from Gifty Assifuah set the Queens for a while until the valiant Azumah Bugri restored hope with her goal three minutes later.

The queens were on their way to the next round in the game's final minutes when a promising attack from the Zambians foiled by Jennifer Cudjoe earned the coppers a free kick and the latter a second yellow card.

With the last kick of the game from Barbara Banda, a low free-kick smashed into Ghana's net, the Zambians equalised and turned the fortunes around, banking on their earlier win in Accra.
