Ghana’s Black Queens were walloped 3-0 by South Africa in the ongoing Aisha Buhari Tournament in Nigeria.
Coach Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo and her ladies could not match up a resilient and experienced South African side.
Hildah Magaia scored South Africa’s first after 17minutes when she capitalized on a rebound from an initial effort from Thembi Kgatlana.
Kgatlana then got her name on the score sheet after leaving the Ghanaian defense in tatters following a superb counter break. The 2018 Africa Women’s best player received a ball, beat Ellen Coleman on a one-one-one situation before getting her way past goalkeeper Fafali Dumahisi in post and slotted into an empty net.
Sibulele Holweni wrapped things up 7minutes from time with a free header from a well-delivered corner kick.
Ghana will now take on Cameroon on Sunday in an attempt to make amends for the loss.
The 2021 Aisha Buhari Tournament is being used to honor the first lady of Nigeria.
