Ghana’s Black Queens marched onto the next stage of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic games qualifiers with a 2-0 victory over their Gabonese counterparts at the Accra Sports Stadium, winning on a 5-0 aggregate.
The Queens, with a three goal advantage going into the game pressed their opponents for the opening in the early stages of the game.
Captain Portia Boakye opened the scores in the 15th unite when the Queens had totally dominated the Les Pantherez in a game that seemed one sided.
The Black Queens captain muzzled her way through two defenders before shooting lowly past Okila Ndzila in goal for the Gabonese.
The Gabonese who had gone down by 3-0 in the first leg at home hoped to reduce the tally by preventing the Black Queens from scoring more.
Their strategy worked as they kept a tight defence, stopping Alice Kusi, Milliot Pokua, and Juliet Acheampong from causing more damage to their side.
However, the Black Queens with superior technique produced clear goal scoring opportunities but failed to score, with Million Pokua the worse culprit.
The Gabonese came into the game strongly in the second half with some delicious football that threatened the defence of the Black Queens, including a 51st minute shot that hit the upright beating goalkeeper Fafali Dumehashi in goal for Ghana.
Coach Mercy Tagoe made some changes to her side with Priscilla Okyere replacing Captain Portia Boakye, the substitution paid off for Ghana as Okyere brought much more stability into the Ghanaians midfield.
by the 70th minute, the Gabonese midfield had been exhausted with creative works from Juliet Acheampong, Grace Asantewaa, and Grace Animah making the Ghanaian side strong.
The Queens capatablized on a mishap in their opponents midfield, and Juliet Acheampong’s shot from 20 yards found the net beating the goalie in post.
The Queens kept pressing for more goals but the Gabonese stood their grounds to prevent and Havoc on their side
