Black Queens push for AWC second round place

10 years ago

With a resounding first leg victory, Ghana are hoping to continue that trend as the Black Queens host Burkina Faso in the 2014 African Women’s Championship.

Ghana won the first leg 3-0 in Ouagadougou, a fortnight ago.

The Black Queens will on Saturday attempt to reach the second round of qualifiers and edge closer to picking one of the seven spots available for a place at final tournament to be staged by Namibia in October later this year.

Coach Yussif Basigi's side remain determined to win the tie as Ghana bid to return 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.

The Black Queens will go into the return leg in Accra with a three-goal advantage, as they attempt to return to the Championship.

The winners of the two-leg first-round matches will progress to the second round to join African champions, Equatorial Guinea, South Africa and Cameroon, who all drew a bye.
