Black Queens suffer 1-0 defeat to Zambia’s Copper Queens


Ghana’s aspirations for a spot in the 2024 Paris Olympics are shrouded in uncertainty after a 1-0 defeat to Zambia’s Copper Queens.

Despite grappling with off-field challenges, Ghana’s team sought to gain a first-leg advantage against Zambia’s formidable side, which boasted some standout players at the Accra Sports Stadium. Nora Hauptle’s squad initiated the game effectively but failed to convert their opportunities.


The consequence of missed chances became evident when Kundananji scored, defying the game’s flow.

The Black Queens increased their efforts, with Doris Boaduwaa’s impressive free-kick hitting the post and Evelyn Badu narrowly missing just before halftime.


In an attempt to secure an equalizer, Freda Ayisi was substituted early.

Despite Ghana’s persistent push, Zambia’s robust defense thwarted their endeavors.


As they prepare for the return fixture in Lusaka, Ghana is determined to cause a significant upset, recognizing that their chance for a spot in Paris 2024 hangs in the balance.
