Ghana confident of beating Banyana


The former Black Stars defender, who was in charge of the team during their abortive campaign at the 5th Fifa Women's World Cup in China last September, told a delegation from the Ghana Football Association and Ministry of Education, Science and Sports who visited the team at their camping base in Prampram that the team will do everything possible to claim the maximum points.

Kwesi Nyantakyi, president of the GFA advised the Queens not to be complacent in their quest to qualify for their first ever Olympic Games.

He said the GFA attach a lot of importance to the crucial game, hence the decision to shift the game to the evening to ensure total support on Sunday.

Osei Bonsu Amoah, Deputy Minister of Education, Science and Sports also promised the team that their outstanding bonuses will be cleared in time for the game and urged them to go all out to ensure a convincing victory.

The Queens lead the Group’s three-team table on six points, three more than their fiercest rivals the Super Falcons of Nigeria and a victory on Sunday would move them within touching distance of the quadrennial games.

The Queens beat Banyana by a single goal in the first leg in Johannesburg during August.
