Ghana Black Queens

The Black Queens of Ghana and the Copper Queens of Zambia clash today at the Accra Sports Stadium in the first leg of their Paris 2024 Olympic qualifiers. Kick-off is set for 5 PM, with the second leg scheduled for Zambia in five days.

Ghana secured their place in the third round after eliminating Guinea and Benin in the previous qualifying stages. They boast a record of two wins and one loss in their last three matches, scoring eight goals while conceding only two.

Zambia, on the other hand, automatically qualified for this round after Mali’s withdrawal. They also come into the match in decent form, with two wins and one loss in their last three games, finding the net 13 times and conceding just two goals.

The two nations last met in a friendly match in 2019, with Zambia emerging victorious 3-2. The winner of this two-legged tie will face either Tunisia or Morocco in April for a chance to qualify for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

This match holds immense significance for both teams. Ghana seeks their first-ever appearance at the Olympics, while Zambia aims to repeat their Tokyo 2020 qualification feat.

This encounter promises to be a thrilling display of African women’s football, with both teams aiming for a historic achievement.
