TOKYO 2020: Black Queens Edge Fire Services Ladies In Preparatory Game

The senior female national team, Black Queens defeated Fire Service Ladies 2-1 at the Ghanaman Soccer Center of Excellence in Prampram this afternoon as the team stepped up preparations for their Olympic Games double header. 

The 2019 WAFU Cup silver medalists conceded an early goal after 17 minutes but drew parity before half time through Sea Lions’ Gladys Amfobea’s long ranger.

Grace Animah of Police Ladies ghosted into the defense of their opponents only to be fouled, up stepped center forward Elizabeth Owusuaa to dispatch the penalty beautifully to put the Queens in front for the first time in the game.

Coach Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo’s side held on to clinch a narrow victory as they prepare for Gabon.

The Queens have been in camp for the past few weeks intensifying their preparations ahead of their clash against Gabon on August 26.

Ghana has failed to qualify for the Olympic Games since 2000.
