5 years ago

Ghana picked up a positive result in the first leg of the final round of qualifying for the 2014 African Women’s Championship after beating Ethiopia 2-0 in Addis Ababa on Sunday.

Goals from Samira Suleman and Elizabeth Cudjoe handed Ghana all three points.

The Black Queens now need to avoid defeat in the return clash at home in a fortnight to reach the finals of the tournament to be staged by Namibia in October of this year.

Seven winners after the return leg which will take place on the weekend of 6-8 June will join hosts Namibia for the final tournament from 11-24 October.

Coach Yussif Basigi will be pushing to return Ghana to Africa’s flagship women’s football tournament after missing out of the tournament for the first time in 2012 since the inception of the biennial championship in 1998.
