Ghana’s Black Queens recorded a resounding 7-0 mauling of Rwanda in the first leg of the 2024 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier (WAFCON) at the Kigali Pele Stadium on Wednesday.
The Black Queens side dominated the game from the onset with a spirited performance in both halves as they brushed aside the “She Amavubis” in the first leg.
A second-minute goal from Doris Boaduwaa set the tone for the afternoon before Evelyn Badu doubled the lead with a sumptuous strike in the ninth minute after latching on to a pass from Grace Acheampong.
Priscilla Adubea got the third of the afternoon with a header in the 30th minute.
After the break, Alice Kusi scored the fourth goal of the game for the Black Queens in the 53rd minute before Evelyn Badu delivered a beautiful strike in the 64th minute to get Ghana’s fifth goal of the game.
Jennifer Cudjoe missed a penalty in the 65th minute but Anastaesia Achiaa made it six for the Queens with a long-range strike in the 75th minute.
Anastaesia grabbed her second a few minutes later as the Black Queens rounded it up with a 7-0 win against Rwanda.
The return fixture is scheduled for the Accra Sports Stadium on Tuesday, September 26, 2023.
