In the buildup to the highly anticipated clash between Zambia and Ghana in the Olympic Games qualifier, Coach Nora Häuptle has applauded her team's efforts in the 1st leg, saying ''we had a good performance on the pitch''.

Ghana need a win on Wednesday to stand the chance of making it to the fourth and final round of the Women's Olympic Games qualifiers after losing 1-0 in the 1st leg in Accra on Friday.

Speaking ahead of the clash, Nora emphasized the importance of playing a highly stabilized game against the Zambians.

“We lost the game 1:0 in Accra but we had a good performance on the pitch. When you look at the statistics, they were all on our side and we deserved that. I think that’s how football goes sometimes. We left Accra Friday night to Zambia and arrived here early'' Nora Häuptle said.

''We have had a very warm reception, this is a beautiful country and the people are very friendly. We had some beautiful training sessions as well. Tonight we go into the stadium and I heard that tomorrow it’s going to be a packed stadium so we like it''.

“I hope it would be a good football game tomorrow evening for us. We also have some plans for tomorrow and it’s our approach to be stable in the game, we need to score and we are aware of that and you will see our plan tomorrow on the pitch” she added.

The game will take place on Wednesday, February 28,2024 at the Levy Nwanawasa Sports Stadium in Ndola.
