The Ministry of Youth and Sports congratulated the female senior national team for their 2-0 victory over Senegal in the opening match of the ongoing WAFU Zone B competition.

Reigning champions, Ghana, began their title defense on a good note with a comfortable victory against the Teranga Lioness last night.

The ministry commended the Queens on their twitter feed this morning.

“Well played and well done to the Black Queens for their opening win in the ongoing WAFU Zone B tournament in Ivory Coast.”

The Black Queens will seek outright qualification if they beat next-door neighbours, Togo, on Friday, May 10.
