However Georgina Ayisha Aoyem scored the first goal as she capitalized on a counter attack to slot home he opener for Ghana on the 49th minute.

After hitting the crossbar with a powerful effort, Princess Owusu then neatly placed the rebound at the bottom corner of the post to register the second goal in the 58th minute mark.

Ghana’s Princess Owusu was given the marching orders after a bad tackle on Senegal midfielder Ndeye Tida.

With just a few minutes to end the game, the Black Maidens added to the tally through Abdulai Karima as she slotted home calmly to complete the 3-0 thumping.

‘’I knew my opponents were not going to be a walk over so I was not surprised we played the first half without getting a goal. These days Women football is played everywhere and you cannot underrate any team and we can only thank God for the win’’ Coach Baba Nuhu said in a post-match presser.

''We will work on our missed chances and get things right in our next matches he added.
