Ghana U17

Ghana’s Black Queens beat their Tunisian counterparts 2-1 in the first leg of the Africa Women Cup of Nations qualifiers.
Ghana came from a goal down to beat their counterparts at the Stade Oued Ellil to make the return leg in Accra an advantage.
The home side took the lead from a spot kick in the 33rd minute before Hasaacas Ladies striker Samira Suleman equalized for Ghana. The youngster, Priscilla Adobea who was making her debut, nailed the match-winner in the 84th after the home team had missed a second penalty kick.
Queens goalkeeper Patricia Mantey will miss the return fixture after receiving a red card.
The result gives Yusif Basigi’s side a solid advantage ahead of the returned encounter in Ghana next Tuesday giving the Tunisians a mammoth task of getting through to the next round.. The Black Queens are chasing their 9th Cup of Nations women’s appearance in this year’s edition in Cameroon. The team failed to qualify out of the Group in the last edition of the competition hosted by Namibia.
The Black Queens are expected in the country on Friday to prepare for the second leg on Tuesday at the Accra Sports Stadium.
