Ghana’s Female Senior National Team, the Black Queens, booked a place at the 2016 African Women’s Championships in Cameroon after beating their Tunisian counterparts 4-0 in the second leg qualifier at the Accra Sports Stadium on Tuesday.
The Queens, led by coach Yusif Basigi have qualified with a 6-1 aggregate win, having already secured a 2-1 victory in Tunis last Saturday.
Ghana left nothing to chance, and took the game to the Tunisians right from the referee’s whistle.
Impressive striker Samira Suleman took advantage of a defensive error by the Tunisians to score early in the game before Portia Boakye and Priscilla Adobea scored for the Queens.
Suleman got the breakthrough for Ghana in the 27th minute after heading home a cross from Portia Boakye to beat the Tunisian goalkeeper at her near post.
Boakye however got Ghana’s second with a thunder bolt strike from 20-yards having capitalized on a weak kick from the Tunisian goalkeeper.
Youngster Priscilla Adobea however added her name on the score list when she made her way through the Tunisian defense to put the ball behind the net.
Suleman however got her second and Ghana’s 4th goal in 77th minute with a wonderful half volley after beating her marker.
Ghana will be joined by seven time champions Nigeria, Egypt, South Africa, Cameroon (hosts), Zimbabwe, Kenya and Equatorial Guinea for the tournament later this year.
