Ghana/Guinea: Black Queens Wallop Female Syli National …in 2nd Leg Paris 2024 Olympic Games Qualifier

Ghana’s Black Queens yesterday thrashed the female Syli National of Guinea 4-0 at the Accra Sports Stadium to book qualification to the second round of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games qualifiers.

Yesterday’s feat handed the Black Queens an authoritative 7-0 aggregate victory, having conquered the Guineans 3-0 in front of their home fans on Friday in the first leg encounter.

A brace from Evelyn Badu; a goal each from Princella Adubea and Firdaus Yakubu delivered Coach Nora Elisabeth Hauptle’s second competitive victory as Ghana recorded a double over their Guinean counterparts.

Despite the win, the spate at which the Black Queens wasted decent goal scoring chances, especially in the first half exposed weaknesses in the attack the technical team must address ahead of the second round qualifier.

The Black Queens could have snatched the opener as early as the first minute but Adubea’s near post connection from a Doris Boaduwaa’s cross went over the line.

Four minutes later, Vivian Konadu Adjei had a chance to open the scoring but her tap-in was blocked by goalkeeper Mawa Traore in post for the Guineans.

Against the run of play, Doussou Djomgbè Camara went close to grabbing the opener for the visitors but her strike at goal missed the post by inches.

That was the closest the Guineans came in the first half as the Ghanaians dominated and kept the goal area of the visitors boiling with regular attacks.
