A hat-trick from Alice Kusi in the 22nd, 26th and 37th minutes put  the Queens in a comfortable position before Evelyn Badu made increased the tally with the 4th goal in the 42nd minute.

The Rwandans came in stronger in the second half but their efforts yielded nothing as the Black Queens kept their composure to stop the visitors from causing any havoc.

Stella Nyamekye added the 5th goal in additional time to give Nora Hauptle’s side a rampaging victory against the visitors.

The result means Ghana are through to the second round of the qualifiers on a 12-0 aggregate score and look set to meet Namibia in the final round of qualifiers in November this year.
