Ghana Edge Namibia For Women’s Africa Cup Of Nations Ticket

Ghana has qualified for the 2024 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) despite losing 1-0 to Namibia in the 2nd leg of the final round qualifier in Pretoria, South Africa.

The Black Queens qualified on a 3-2 aggregate score after winning 3-1 in the 1st leg at the Accra Sports Stadium Friday.

Namibia scored the game’s only goal in the 15th minute through Nanamus Lydiana. But that wasn’t enough to see them through as Ghana picked the slot for next year’s tournament in Morocco.

Ghana becomes the fourth country to secure qualification to the continent’s flagship female competition, joining host, Morocco, South Africa, and Algeria.

The defeat is the first under coach Nora Häuptle who took charge in February this year.

Nora has succeeded in qualifying for the WAFCON for the first time since 2018.
