Estimated read time 2 min read

Ghana Black Queens on Tuesday, December 5, booked their place in the 2024 African Women’s Cup of Nations to be hosted in Morocco. The team missed out in the last edition which was also hosted in Morocco but made a bold show in qualification as they booked their ticket at the expense of Namibia.

After securing a 3-1 victory in Accra last week kind courtesy of Doris Boaduwaa and Portia Boakye, the Queens sailed through despite losing to Namibia at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in Pretoria, South Africa.

Coach Nora’s side has been impressive in the qualifiers so far only conceding their first goal since she took over in the 3-1 win over Namibia when Portia Boakye turned into the Ghanaian net. The Black Queens will also be making their 13th appearance at the tournament. Coach Nora will also hope to lead the team to go further and better their second-place finish achieved in 1998, 2002 and 2006. Ghana’s last appearance ended in disaster as the team exited in the group stage in 2018.
