2024 Women’s AfconQ: Black Queens dominate Rwanda with 7-0 rout in first leg

Ghana’s senior women’s national team, the Black Queens, commenced their journey in the 2024 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifiers with a commanding 7-0 victory on the road against Rwanda on Wednesday afternoon.

Nora Häuptle’s side showcased their dominance, netting three goals in the first half and adding four more in the second, resulting in an emphatic win at the Kigali Pelé Stadium.

The opening goal came merely two minutes into the game as Doris Boaduwaa headed the ball into the net from a corner kick.

Evelyn Badu doubled Ghana’s lead in the 13th minute, while Princella Adubea added another with a header in the 28th minute, concluding the first half with a 3-0 advantage for the Queens.

Eight minutes into the second half, Doris provided a precise assist to Alice Kusi, who tapped the ball into the net from the centre of the box.

Evelyn then secured her brace just four minutes after the hour mark, extending the lead to 5-0.

However, Jennifer Cudjoe missed a penalty just two minutes later.

With 15 minutes remaining in the match, Anasthesia Achiaa displayed her skills by scoring a splendid volley from the edge of the box. She added her second goal in the 85th minute, both due to lapses in the She-Amavubi goalkeeper’s performance.

The 7-0 final scoreline reflected a routine victory for the Black Queens, a trend that has become customary under the guidance of Swiss coach Nora Häuptle.

The return leg of this first-round qualifying fixture is scheduled to take place at the Accra Sports Stadium on Tuesday, September 26, with the Black Queens aiming to solidify their path to the second round.
