Ghana demonstrated their dominance over Namibia in the first leg of the WAFCON (Women’s Africa Cup of Nations) qualifier, securing a notable 3-1 victory.
In an impressive performance in Accra, the Black Queens established a three-goal lead. Doris Boaduwaa showcased clinical finishing with two goals, and Portia Boakye also contributed with a goal. Despite a defensive miscommunication resulting in an own goal and allowing Namibia a consolation score, Ghana’s lead positions them well for the second leg, with qualification for the tournament in Morocco in their sights.
The second leg is scheduled for December 5 at Lucas Moripe Stadium, and Coach Nora Hauptle is determined to uphold her team’s unbeaten record. Despite the defensive lapse in the form of an own goal, the Black Queens remain in a strong position, looking to secure victory in Namibia and make a successful return to the prestigious continental event after missing out in the last edition.
