Black Queens thump She-Amavubis 5-0

Ghana's Black Queens handed their Rwandan counterparts a crushing 5-0 defeat in the return leg of the 2024 Women's Africa Cup of Nations preliminary round qualifier at the Accra Sports Stadium yesterday.

In what could be described as a walk in the park, the Ghanaians needed a hat-trick from Alice Kusi and a goal each by Evelyn Badu and Stella Nyamekye to complete a 12-0 aggregate victory over the She-Amavubis and set up a date with Namibia in November in the second round of the qualifiers.

Coach Nora Hauptle's team, already enjoying a comfortable 7-0 lead from the first leg in Kigali, were in no mood to relent on home turf.

They patiently awaited their moment, which came in the 22nd minute when Alice Kusi ignited the goal spree that saw Ghana secure a four-goal cushion going into halftime.

Throughout the first half, Ghana's relentless attacks kept the pressure on Rwanda, resulting in several scoring opportunities.

However, they were temporarily thwarted by Rwanda's goalkeeper, Diane Uwamahori, who made crucial saves, including an impressive stop from Jennifer Cudjoe's 25-yard shot.
